Thomistic Institute Director named McDonald Agape Foundation Distinguished Scholar
Fr. Thomas Joseph White, OP of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas and Director of the Thomistic Institute at the Angelicum, has been named a Distinguished Scholar of the McDonald Agape Foundation. He has received a grant from the Foundation for a multi-year project entitled Trinity and Personhood: Deciphering Meaning the 21st Century. This project explores questions regarding classical Christian claims about God and human personhood, and their contemporary relevance, especially in the context of a society that is technologically globalized, economically united, multi-cultural and multi-religious.
The McDonald Agape Foundation Encourages Distinguished Scholars for Christ at elite Universities with scholars and leaders who attain both the highest levels of scholarship and represent strong models of spiritual knowledge and faith. Past and present grant awardees of the McDonald Agape Foundation include Stanley Hauerwas (Duke), Nigel Biggar (Oxford), John Witte, Jr (Emory), Daniel Sulmasy (Georgetown), Sarah Coakley (Cambridge), Michael Welker (Heidelberg) and Daniel Chua (Hong Kong).
