The Angelicum is a Dominican University, founded by the Order of Friars Preachers, to give expression to the Order’s Gospel charism of preaching and teaching the truth of Jesus Christ to all nations. Like the Angelic Doctor himself, today’s students learn by opening the classic books of revelation, of nature, and of experience, which discloses the inner book of the Church’s living Tradition, a Tradition of God’s Word made flesh and dwelling amongst us.
As a Dominican University, we were founded by the Order of Preachers to give expression to the Order’s gospel charism of preaching and teaching the Truth of Jesus Christ to all nations, focusing on the “Four Pillars” for the Order:
Rooted in the personal and professional relationship between professors and students.
Opening our hearts and minds to pursue and receive the Truth that is Jesus Christ through contemplation.
Focused more on the assimilation of wisdom than on the multiplication of knowledge.
Through the mastering of the charity of truth prepared to teach, to bear witness, and to serve.
The Dominicans who direct the University seek to continue in the same spirit of Truth of St. Dominic and of these Four Priorities and Five Frontiers. Inspired by the great doctor saints of the Order –SS. Albert the Great, Thomas Aquinas, and Catherine of Siena – we aim to penetrate the Truth of Jesus Christ and to discover and preach that harmony between faith and reason that our broken world so needs today.
