Dominican friars appointed to the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas
January 9, 2012
In December 2011, two Dominican friars of the Province of St. Joseph were appointed to the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas, an academic society whose mission is “to carry out research into, to defend, and to disseminate the doctrine of the Angelic Doctor, and, taking due account of contemporary cultural traditions, ‘to develop further this part of Thomistic doctrine which deals with humanity, given that his assertions on the dignity of the human person and the use of his reason, in perfect harmony with the faith, make St. Thomas a teacher for our time’ (Inter Munera Academiarum, n. 4).” Fr. Thomas Joseph White, O.P., Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology at the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC, was named an Ordinary Academician. Fr. Nicholas Lombardo, O.P., Assistant Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, was named a Corresponding Academician.
