An Aquinas Institute…in the summer…in Wyoming

This in from Jeremy Holmes of Wyoming Catholic College, regarding a new summer Aquinas Institute entitled "Reading St. Paul with St. Thomas":

I thought I should update you on a project undertaken by Peter Kwasniewski, John Mortensen, and myself.  We have founded a non-profit corporation here in Lander called The Aquinas Institute whose main purpose is to offer graduate level summer courses centered on the writings of Aquinas.  We ran classes last summer with great success, so we've made it official and plan to continue.

Our regular curriculum will include three summers of work on the Summa, working through as much of the Summa as possible and treating it as a real theological source rather than as a historical artifact.  We will also offer a one-summer program in Scripture, based as much as possible around Thomas's commentaries; this coming summer, in fact, we are not doing anything with the Summa, instead reading all of Paul's letters with all of Aquinas's commentaries thereupon--probably the first time such a thing has been done since anyone can remember!

The Institute has a fine website that contains all the detailed one could want.
