Jesuit to Lecture on Thomas Aquinas at UST

Fr. Kevin Flannery, S.J., of the Pontifical Gregorian University will deliver this year’s Aquinas Lecture titled “The Capacious Mind of Thomas Aquinas” at The University of St. Thomas in Houston.

The lecture, hosted by The University of St. Thomas Center for Thomistic Studies, will focus on why the writings of Aquinas should acts as guideposts for Christians when faced with a difficult decision. Both Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI have urged Catholics to return to the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas in making these decisions. Fr. Flannery believes Aquinas’ writings are essential for speaking coherently about such matters as killing in war, self-defense, and lying as well as other issues.

Fr. Flannery is Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy and Ordinary Professor of the History of Ancient Philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. Fr. Flannery is the author of many works on ethics and on the history of logic, including Acts Amid Precepts: The Aristotelian Logical Structure of Thomas Aquinas’s Moral Theory. He received his D.Phil. from the University of Oxford.

The lecture will take place on Thursday, January 24, 2013 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM. For more information please click here.
