Mount St. Mary College in NY To Host Aquinas Workshop

Mount St. Mary College in New York will be hosting its third annual Thomas Aquinas Philosophy Workshop, “Free Will and Moral Virtue,” from Thursday, June 13 through Sunday, June 16.

Sponsored by the Mount’s Catholic and Dominican Institute and the Thomistic Institute of the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, the workshop will reportedly explore the nature of human freedom according to St. Thomas Aquinas.

Scholars including Fr. James Brent, OP, of the Catholic University of America; Alfred Freddoso, of the University of Notre Dame; Michael Gorman, of the Catholic University of America; John O’Callaghan, of the University of Notre Dame; Candace Vogler, of the University of Chicago; Fr. Michael Sherwin, OP, of the University of Fribourg; Jennifer Frey, of the University of Chicago; and Russell Hittinger, of the University of Tulsa will discuss whether Aquinas’ analysis is defensible today.

Mass and Eucharistic Adoration will be offered each day.

Required texts for this event are “Summa Theologiae” by Thomas Aquinas, “The Sources of Christian Ethics” by Servais Pinckaers, and “Ethica Thomistica” by Ralph McInerny.

The registration deadline is April 30, 2013. To register, visit this website.
