Our overriding aim is to contribute to the diffusion of the traditional catholic doctrine in the contemporary world. Accepting all the radical changes, but without compromise, we would like to be modern disciples of Thomas Aquinas.
In this we follow in the footsteps of our illustrious ex-students: M.D. Chenu O.P.(medievalist and precursor of the Second Vatican Council), J.M. Tillard O.P. (theologian and promoter of the ecumenical movement); K. Wojtyla (1978-2005), a Pontiff of extraordinary charisma, ex-student of the Angelicum).
We are an academic community of 150 professors (coming from 30 countries) e 1400 students (from 98 different nations). The dependent personnel does not arrive at one tenth of that of the professors, while the Dominican friars and sisters actually provide two thirds of the formation The Faculties of Theology and Philosophy have a section each in Italian and English in the First Cycle. In the Faculties of Canon Law and Social Sciences the teaching is done in Italian, except in the case of particular programmes.
Karol Wojtyla: A Pope Who Hails from the Angelicum (Città Nuova, Roma 2009)
328 pages - date December 2009 - € 34,00
In 1948 the young Karol Wojtyla defended his doctoral thesis in theology at the Pontifical Atheneum Angelicum in Rome. The contributions in this book, written by specialists in the different fields of theology, of social doctrine, of law and of politics, highlight the principal currents of the thought and the inheritance that John Paul II, the Pope Saint, bequeathed to the Church and to the world of our time. Furthermore, it reproduces the original version of the first theological work of the future Pontiff, the Doctrine of the Faith in St. John of the Cross.
The volume likewise contains both written and photographic reminiscences of the visits of Karol Wojtyla, as Pope, to the Angelicum, his alma mater.
The materials in this work have been assembled and organized by G. M. Salvati, O.P., Ordinary Professor and former Dean of the Angelicum’s Theological Faculty, Ordinary Member of the Pontifical Academy of Theology, and President of the Institute for Higher Religious Studies Mater Ecclesiae; and A. Lo Presti, Professor of the History of Political Science in the Angelicum’s Faculty of Social Sciences, Director of the Igino Giordani Center of Studies, and political commentator for Vatican Radio.
The book is available in the Angelicum bookshop.
