Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas

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.

Famous quotes containing the words aquinas, thomas, university and/or saint:

    Though of erect nature, man is far above the plants. For man’s superior part, his head, is turned toward the superior part of the world, and his inferior part is turned toward the inferior world; and therefore he is perfectly disposed as to the general situation of his body. Plants have the superior part turned towards the lower world, since their roots correspond to the mouth, and their inferior parts towards the upper world.
    —Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–1274)

    Out of the sighs a little comes,
    But not of grief, for I have knocked down that
    Before the agony; the spirit grows,
    Forgets, and cries;
    A little comes, is tasted and found good....
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    It is well known, that the best productions of the best human intellects, are generally regarded by those intellects as mere immature freshman exercises, wholly worthless in themselves, except as initiatives for entering the great University of God after death.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    There’s so much saint in the worst of them,
    And so much devil in the best of them,
    That a woman who’s married to one of them,
    Has nothing to learn of the rest of them.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)
