AbstractThis paper will examine the pedagogy of the exemplary vignette as a means of "mass" identity formation within the Dominican Order and among its far flung supporters. In the process, I make the case that Cistercian Conrad of Eberbach's earlier Exordium Magnum provided a model for a Dominican "memory" and the identity that shared memory was to ensure.
