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.
