August 12 - 16; Wausau, WI
The Albert the Great Center is expanding its offerings by holding a summer theology program in the USA for the first time in collaboration with The Aquinas Institute for the Study of Sacred Doctrine. The primary focus of this week-long intensive course will be the Epistle of St. Paul to the Galatians, supported by St. Thomas Aquinas' commentary on the same epistle.
The daily academic schedule will include both lectures and discussion-style seminars. The seminars focus on a detailed reading of the great texts of the theological tradition, the aim of which is to arrive at a deeper knowledge of truth through a collaborative work of reasoned dialogue. The lectures provide an opportunity for certain topics that arise out of the reading to be explored in greater depth. One of the highlights of the course is the formal scholastic disputation to be held on Thursday, August 15, in honor of the solemn feast of Our Lady's Assumption.
In addition to the academic program, there will also be ample opportunity to participate in the rich liturgical life of St. Mary's Oratory with the canons of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. Daily Mass and prayers of the divine office will be available in the usus antiquior('extraordinary form') of the Roman Rite, as well as the sacrament of confession.
Faculty for the program: Dr. John Joy, Dr. Alan Fimister, and Dr. Taylor Patrick O’Neill.
