As their order was modeled after universities, the Dominicans
originally pursued classical studies, philosophy, theology, and both exact and natural sciences, offering »solid foundation in the quest for greater wisdom«. Valuable codices, incunabula and rare editions preserved in the Dominican Library serve as evidence of their educational and scholarly work in the cityrepublic of St Blaise.
