Thomas O’Meara’s Thomistic Bibliography and translation on Albert

Scrounging around the "studies" section of the Dominican Central website (the website of the Central Province of the Dominican Order here in the United State [the Province of St. Albert the Great]), I was also reminded of Fr Thomas O'Meara's informative "Thomistic Bibliography," which was also printed in his book on Aquinas, Thomas Aquinas Theologian (Notre Dame: University of Notre Dame Press, 1997). The Bibliography is a great help and a reminder of how much one has to do if one is committed to the study of Aquinas!

Don't miss Fr O'Meara's translation from the German of Rudolf Schieffer's "Albertus Magnus. Mendicancy and Theology in Conflict with Episcopacy." The story of Albert's resignation from the episcopacy of Regensburg is fascinating to me, in large part because it led him to be at the curia in Orvieto in the early 1260's, where Thomas himself was assigned at the time, thus spending up to six months with his former student (of about ten year previous). What I would do to know what the two talked about!
