St. Albert the Great: Medieval Wisdom for Modern Science


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.


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.

In his talk, Fr. Thomas references a lecture given by Fr. Aniceto Fernandez Alonso, O.P. who was a professor of Physical Science and Cosmology in the faculty of philosophy at the Angelicum from 1932-1950. The lecture was given here at the Angelicum at the inauguration of the academic year on November 14, 1935.

The original lecture, in Latin, is available here.

An English translation is available here. (Translated by the Dominican friars of the Albertus Magnus Lyceum at the Dominican House of Studies in River Forest, Illinois around 1950)
