Pontificia Università S.Tommaso d’Aquino ANGELICUM

http://ANGELICUM.it

The Pontificia Università S. Tommaso d'Aquino in Urbe (Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas), popularly known as “the Angelicum,” is an international center of learning in the historic center of Rome, Italy. The Angelicum’s most distinguished alumnus is Fr. Karol Józef Wojtyła (Pope St. John Paul II). The same classrooms where he studied Theology and defended his doctoral dissertation are still in daily use by our 1,200+ professors and students coming from over 90 countries.

The university is run by the Dominicans (Order of Preachers) and has faculties of Theology, Philosophy, Canon Law, and Social Sciences. The foundation of the Angelicum goes back to the XIII century (1265) medieval Dominican house of studies in Rome, where St. Thomas Aquinas taught friars in formation for the Dominican priesthood.

While many students are preparing for ordination to the priesthood or for a ministry in the Church, there is a rapidly growing number of lay students. All carry a commitment of dedication and service to the Catholic faith and the Universal Church.

Today the Angelicum remains committed to preserving the heritage of St. Thomas Aquinas as a vital force in theological and philosophical scholarship and in the teaching of classical Roman Catholic Theology. In Fall 2018, the university is opened the Thomistic Institute - Angelicum in order to promote the study of St. Thomas at the heart of the Church. This new institute will foster theological research and engagement with other philosophical and theological traditions, as well as contemporary sciences.
