Welcome to the Thomas Aquinas Lecture Series sponsored by Albertus Magnus College. This series has been named after St. Thomas Aquinas, a scholar and member of the Dominican order, who left behind knowledge and inquiry.
Since its founding in 1925 by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, the College has cherished its Dominican tradition and Catholic heritage through the pursuit of truth in all its dimensions. The College continues to use this tradition and heritage as a lens to which it "responds to the academic needs and ethical challenges of its students and society." (Statement of Mission, 2003)
The lecture series, brought to you in the spirit of St. Thomas Aquinas, highlights speakers and topics that challenge our quest for the truth today.
This event is made possible through the generosity of the Marie Louise Bianchi '31 Fund.
