Dominicus Habricx was a Dominican theologian and professor at the Seminarium of Roermond in the region of Limburg. He was born in 1687 in the city of Roermond, and in 1708 he received at Maastricht the Dominican habit. He studied theology at the University of Leuven, where he also took his degree, and became a 'licentiatus', which gave him the licence to teach (Licentia docendi). In 1720 he was appointed professor at the monastery in Liege, and in 1726 regent of the Episcopal Seminary in Roermond. In 1730 he became a so-called controverse-preacher to Maastricht, delivering with success polemical sermons. He died in 1748. The manuscripts of the theological lectures he held in Liège, fill three volumes and were held at the beginning of the 20th century by the library of the monastery at Maastricht.
