Conference: "Current Research on Thomas Aquinas" in Spain

osma130.gifA conference entitled “A Panorama of Current Research on Thomas Aquinas” will be held at the University of Navarre, Pamplona (Spain), on April 25-27, 2005. Here is the presentation from the web site (which is in both English and Spanish):

Thomas Aquinas is the most outstanding representative of the medieval synthesis of cultures that gave unity to Europe. Even after seven centuries, his doctrine continues to be a paradigm of universality, balance and integration.

The year 2005 will mark the 125th anniversary of the proclamation of Thomas Aquinas as the patron of academic centers. This year’s Navarre Philosophy Meetings, A Panorama of Current Research on Thomas Aquinas, will commemorate this anniversary by offering a global vision of contemporary Thomism. We wish to highlight the work of major centers of Thomistic study, focusing on their history, their present state and their ongoing projects. In addition, we will present sessions on current trends in interpretation, new critical editions of texts, and the application of new technologies to academic research.
