Grace & Nature: Contemporary Controversies

Events

The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) sponsors several events each year and previously did not have a unified source of information about university events. The purpose of the Angelicum Events Calendar is to serve as a method for publicizing University-sponsored events that have been approved and scheduled.

Eventi

La Pontificia Università di San Tommaso d'Aquino (Angelicum) sponsorizza migliaia di eventi ogni anno. Negli scorsi anni non vi era una fonte unificata di informazioni sugli eventi universitari. Lo scopo del Calendario eventi dell'Angelicum è quello di servire come mezzo per la pubblicità degli eventi sponsorizzati dall'Università che sono stati approvati e pianificati.
