“Towards a Biblical Thomism”

Recently a book Towards a Biblical Thomism. Thomas Aquinas and the Renewal of Biblical Theology, ed. Piotr Roszak and Jörgen Vijgen (Ediciones Universidad de Navarra S.A. 2018) has been published. It contains eleven articles on various aspects of Aquinas’ Biblical exegesis and its contemporary validity. In most cases, these are revised and expanded versions of papers given at last year’s conference Towards a Biblical Thomism, organized by the Theological Faculty of Nicolaus Copernicus University and the Thomistic Institute. At the YouTube of the Theological Faculty you may find the recordings of all the talks from the conference.

Among the authors of the articles published in the book there are two members of our Institute: Michał Mrozek O.P. („The Use of Scripture in Aquinas’ Summa Theologiae I-II, qq. 49-70) and Mateusz Przanowski O.P. („Formam servi accipiens [Phil 2:7] or Plenus gratiae et veritatis [Jn 1:14]? The apparent dilemma in Aquinas’ exegesis”). In the book there are also papers by, among others, Matthew Levering, Anthony Giambrone O.P.,  Michael Sherwin O.P., Enrique Alarcón and Randall Smith (a table of contents may be found here).

The book is in a way a continuation of Reading Sacred Scripture with Thomas Aquinas. Hermeneutical Tools, Theological Questions and New Perspectives, ed. Piotr Roszak and Jörgen Vijgen (Brepols 2015), based on a previous conference on Aquinas’ Biblical exegesis.
