The weekend of October 2-3, the Thomistic Institute will host the Fall 2015 Thomistic Circles conference “The Mind of Christ: Christology and Contemporary Exegesis.” Speakers include Dr. Ben Witherington III from Asbury Theological Seminary, Dr. Bruce D. Marshall from Southern Methodist University, Dr. William Wright from Duquesne University, Dr. R. Trent Pomplun from Loyola University Maryland, and Fr. Simon Gaine, OP from University of Oxford. The schedule and titles of the talks are available at the website of the Thomistic Institute.
The event will be held at the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, located in Washington, D.C., at 487 Michigan Ave. NE. The lectures are free and open to the public.
The Thomistic Circles are an annual cycle of conferences designed to help renew in the Church today a sense of the perennial importance of the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor. The conferences bring together scholars of the highest level to present with clarity and insight the wisdom of Aquinas, in dialogue with one another, and in response to modern problems and questions. The Thomistic Circles conferences are offered bi-annually in both the Spring and Fall semesters.
