Sapientia Press of Ave Maria University has recently published Daria Spezzano's masterful work, The Glory of God's Grace: Deification According to St. Thomas Aquinas. It is the first full-length, comprehensive study of St. Thomas's teaching on deification in its scriptural, patristic, philosophical, developmental, and systematic context.

At the Angelicum in Rome Professor Cecilia Trifogli lectured on Thomas and the ontological nature of time. Check out the lecture's handout, as well as audio of the whole thing.
