  • Fr. Wojciech Giertych, OP - The Moral Theology of Aquinas: Is It For Individuals?
  • Fr. Wojciech Giertych, OP - Interview

Free and open to the public. Cosponsored by the Theology Club at the Divinity School and the Hildegard of Bingen Society for Christian Thought and Culture.

Is the moral teaching of Aquinas a purely cerebral, speculative reflection that can hardly be correlated with practical Christian living, or does it have a message that can be correlated with the experience and difficulties of an average individual? This lecture views the theology of Aquinas in the light of the concrete down-to earth approach focused on individuals that seems to be the basic gift of Pope Francis. It attempts to propose a reading of Aquinas that is spiritually nourishing.
