Welcome to Thomistica.net, a website devoted to the academic study of St. Thomas Aquinas (a.d. 1225-1274), the medieval Italian theologian of the Order of Friars Preachers (Dominicans). This site is designed to provide ready access to up-to-date information about resources for scholars of Aquinas, via a constantly-updated news page, which in turn is the source for an RSS newsfeed, as well as a Twitter feed (@thomistica). The site was founded by Mark Johnson, of the Department of Theology at Marquette University (Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA).  Dr. Johnson turned over the management of Thomistica.net to the Aquinas Center of Ave Maria University (Ave Maria, Florida, USA) in July of 2011.
