Happy Aquinas Day!

Per my Catholic friends, today is the Feast Day of one of the reasons I love being a medievalist: St. Thomas Aquinas. My firsthand engagement with his work began through my research into the Seven Deadlies, and those Mondovillians who have endured my course in the 7DS will confirm that I remain a fan.

Aquinas is the patron of schools, colleges, and students, and he strikes me as a good friend to have, even if I’m on the far side of the Tiber.

    Wouldn’t he make an interesting dinner guest, for many reasons?

  3. It is a great thing to have understanding of the teachings of sage men in your life. I need to redouble my efforts to keep refreshing what I’ve learned lest it slip away from me out of disuse.

  4. Feel free to get closer to the banks of the Tiber. We can have a party! 🙂
