A site for the academic study of St. Thomas Aquinas
Since 2004 we have followed conferences, publications (online and in print), and news about the efforts of Aquinas scholars everywhere. Click this link to keep up on events, people, and writings of interest to Aquinas scholarship.
Two items of note from the folks at the Albertus Magnus Center for Scholastic Studies:
First, the proceedings from their 2016 Summer School, "Thomas's Commentary on the Romans", are available for pre-order. Included in the volume are several of the papers given as lectures during the school on themes such as sacrifice, faith, and as well as the from their scholastic disputation.
As the various debates and crises of the 20th century illustrate, the specific focus of fundamental theology addresses some of the most contentious and pertinent aspects of theological and ecclesial reflection within the (post-)modern milieu. Dr. Lawrence Feingold’s recent volume, Faith Comes from What Is Heard: An Introduction to Fundamental Theology, published by Emmaus Academic, provides the reader with a much-needed “textbook” (xix) that faithfully and perspicaciously navigates the decisive waters of fundamental theology.
Like a good fight? Ferrum ferro acuitur, et homo exacuit faciem amici sui (Prov. 27). Here our contributors address issues both traditional and contemporary, from a Thomistic perspective. Veritas, claritas, brevitas, charitas. See what they have to say.
Over the years we have stockpiled a few translations of texts, either of works from Aquinas, or about him, plus our two original newsletters. Though they've been available for a while there's no reason to delete them and—quod scripsi, scripsi !—every reason to hope that they still have use.
Our contributors have visited locations of significance in Aquinas's life and have shared their photos. Take a look at our admittedly incomplete collection.
