On 13-15 December 2018, the Thomas Instituut will organize its sixth international conference, devoted to:
INITIATION AND MYSTAGOGY IN THOMAS AQUINAS:
THEOLOGICAL, PHILOSOPHICAL, LITURGICAL, AND PEDAGOGICAL PERSPECTIVES.
Lectures will be given by, among others, Bernhard Blankenhorn OP (Angelicum, Rome), Matthew Levering (Mundelein Seminary), Daria Spezzano (Providence College), and Rudi te Velde (Thomas Instituut te Utrecht, Tilburg University).
Recent research by Torrell (2011), Murray (2013), Klimczak (2014), Blankenhorn (2015), and Mongeau (2015), among others, rightly underlines the spiritual, mystical, liturgical, and pedagogical dimensions in Aquinas’s corpus. After all, Aquinas was first a teacher and preacher (or a pedagogue and mystagogue, if you will), who, being himself a man of prayer and mystic of sorts, composed (especially communal-liturgical) texts. But how do (a) spiritual, mystical, and liturgical inspiration, (b) intellectual study and reflection, (b) and (c) the process of passing down faith and knowledge relate to one another?
