Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas

The St. John Paul II Institute of Culture is housed under the Faculty of Philosophy at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome.  Inaugurated on John Paul II’s 100th birthday, (May 18, 2020), the Institute’s mission is to examine the teachings of Karol Wojtyła as a starting and continuous reference point in reflecting on current problems facing the Church in the modern world. The Institute’s lecturers include noted scholars from across the world, representing numerous academic disciplines.
