After Vatican II, Thomism was often seen as a hindrance to the Church in her engagement with contemporary society. Today that assumption is being revisited. There is a renaissance in Thomistic studies, often in collaboration with other academic disciplines and in engagement with contemporary theology and philosophy. This event will discuss the fate of Thomism in a post-Vatican II setting. What are its challenges and opportunities? How can the study of Aquinas’ thought contribute to the vitality of the Church’s intellectual tradition today?
