Thomism After Vatican II


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.

Thomism After Vatican II

Oct 27 at 09:30 - 13:00

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?
