Aquinas the Augustinian Conference at Ave Maria in Florida

Ave Maria University’s Aquinas Center for Theological Renewal, which is “a new academic institute created to foster the renewal of Catholic theology,” is hosting another conference, this one entitled “Aquinas the Augustinian Conference,” to be held in Naples, Florida, on February 3-5, 2005. From the web site:

The recent work of such thinkers as Alasdair MacIntyre and Servais Pinckaers OP has highlighted the Augustinian aspects of Aquinas’s philosophy/theology. It is thus a fruitful time to bring together a group of scholars to investigate in a systematic fashion the interplay between these two great theologians and the ways that retrieval of their thought in the modern context should proceed.

The list of speakers is as follows:
