|Saint Vincent Ferrer,
St. Vincent Ferrer was the most notable and successful preacher of his day, converting thousands of Jews and Moors in Spain and to Catharists and Waldensians elsewhere. He also brought his message of penance to huge Christian crowds throughout western Europe. Images will show him tonsured and in his Dominican habit, as at left.
