Dominicans gather in Poland for conference: "Dominicans and the Challenge of Thomism"

As we speak, an international conference is taking place at The Thomistic Institute in Warsaw (Poland), entitled “Dominicans and the Challenge of Thomism.”

On invitation of the Polish Province of the Dominican Order, some 80 Dominican Thomists are gathered there to “discover the depth and diversity of Thomistic inquiry in our Order today, particularly for younger scholars immersed in the thought of St. Thomas.”

Take a look at the website to discover the impressive program but also listen to some of the talks. From what we can gather in reading the program, we cannot but eagerly await the proceedings of what looks like the single most important event in recent years in the ongoing “renaissance of Thomism” (A. Nichols).
