The Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas is the university of the Dominican Order in Rome, Italy, and one of the pontifical universities of the world. It is also known as the Angelicum in honor of its patron Thomas Aquinas who in the scholastic tradition is known as the Doctor Angelicus. The Angelicum is directly dependent on the Pope for its mandate and status as a pontifical university as outlined in the apostolic constitution Sapientia Christiana, which also clarifies the parameters of Church authority and academic freedom. The Angelicum is administered by the Order of Preachers of the Catholic Church, and is staffed by members of both the clergy and the laity. It serves both religious and lay students from around the world as the central locus of the authentic Dominican Thomist theological and philosophical tradition.

“God should not be called an individual substance, since the principal of individuation is matter.”
—Thomas Aquinas (c. 12251274)
“Within the university ... you can study without waiting for any efficient or immediate result. You may search, just for the sake of searching, and try for the sake of trying. So there is a possibility of what I would call playing. Its perhaps the only place within society where play is possible to such an extent.”
—Jacques Derrida (b. 1930)
“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he neer so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition.
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispins day.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
