The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, commonly known as the "Angelicum", is Rome's Dominican university and one of the major pontifical universities of the City. Staffed and administered by the members of the Order of Preachers, it serves as a locus for the Dominican theological tradition among the Roman pontifical universities.

History

The Pontifical University of St. Thomas in Rome is heir of the mediaeval Studium founded by the Dominican Order, indeed by St. Thomas Aquinas himself, as well as of the College of St. Thomas (Lat: "Collegium Divi Thomæ de Urbe"), which Monsignor Juan Solano O.P. (1506-1580), Bishop emeritus of Cuzco (Peru), established in 1577 at the Convent of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome. The new college was established on the foundation of the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas to meet the demand of the mission of the Church in the New World; where personalities like Bartolomé de las Casas O.P., Pedro de Cordova O.P. and Francisco de Vitoria O.P. were already engaged. [Cf. Edward Kaczyński O.P., "Pontifical University of St. Thomas "Angelicum" in: Grzegorz Gałązka, "Pontifical Universities and Roman Athenaea", Vatican City: "Libreria Editrice Vaticana", 2000, p. 52. ISBN 88-209-2967-8 (casebound) or, ISBN 88-209-2966-X (paperbound)]

This Italo-Spanish college became an international centre of Thomistic specialization, open to members of various provinces of the Dominican Order and to ecclesiastical students, local and foreign. The rectors of the institution had to belong either to the Dominican Province of Rome or of Spain.

In 1698, Cardinal Girolamo Casanate (1620-1700), the Librarian of the Holy Roman Church, established at the Convent of Santa Maria sopra Minerva the Casanatense Library ("Biblioteca Casanatense"), [ [http://www.casanatense.it/jsp/english_site/about_us/history.jsp The Casanatense Library] en icon it icon] which was independent of the Convent and the College. At his death the library was inherited by the Convent and, opened to the general public. According to the Cardinal's last will and testament the College acquired the use of the library.

On May 26, 1727, Pope Benedict XIII gave to the Order’s major Houses of Study, and therefore also to the College of St. Thomas, the right of conferring academic degrees in theology to students outside the Order.

In 1873, the College of St. Thomas had to leave its residence at the Minerva and was centered at various locations in Rome.

In 1882 the Faculty of Philosophy was founded.

In 1896 the Faculty of Canon Law was founded.

It was thanks to the efforts of Blessed Giacinto M. Cormier O.P., Master General of the Order of Preachers, that, on May 2, 1906, the College of Saint Thomas received the title "Pontificium", from Pope Saint Pius X (Lat: "Pontificium Collegium Divi Thomæ de Urbe"). This made the degrees conferred by the College equivalent to those of the world’s other Catholic Universities.

By the Apostolic Letter of November 8, 1908, signed by the Supreme Pontiff on November 17, the new Pontifical International College "Angelicum" (Lat: "Pontificium Collegium Internationale Angelicum") was erected on the site of the College of Saint Thomas, with headquarters in Via San Vitale 15.

In 1926 the Pontifical International College "Angelicum" became a Institute (Lat: "Pontificium Institutum Internationale Angelicum").

In 1932 "Angelicum" was transferred to the appropriately expanded buildings of the ancient Dominican monastery of Saints Dominic and Sixtus.

In 1942 the Pontifical International Institute "Angelicum" became an Athenaeum (Lat: "Pontificium Athenaeum Internationale Angelicum").

In 1950, the Institute of Spirituality was founded and incorporated into the Faculty of Theology.

In 1951 the Institute of Social Sciences was founded within the Faculty of Philosophy.

On March 7, 1963, Blessed Pope John XXIII, with the Motu proprio "Dominicanus Ordo", [Acta Apostolicae Sedis 55 (1963), pp. 205-208.] raised the "Angelicum" to the rank of Pontifical University (Lat: "Pontificia Universitas Studiorum a Sancto Thoma Aquinate in Urbe").

In 1974 the Institute of Social Sciences was elevated to the rank of a Faculty.

Incorporated into the "Angelicum"’s Faculty of Theology is the Institute of Greco-Byzantine Ecumenical-Patristic Theology "Saint Nicholas" at Bari (Italy), specializing in Ecumenical-Patristic and Greco-Byzantine Studies. The Fathers from the Dominican Province of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Italy administer the Institute. Several other Institutes of theological and philosophical studies are affiliated with the University.

The University today

Today, the University is noted especially for its faculties of Canon Law, Sacred Theology, and Philosophy.

The "Angelicum"'s Faculty of Sacred Theology has served as the official "Sedes Thomæ" in Rome, providing theology students in the Eternal City the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Thomistic and Dominican tradition. To that end, the university has always boasted a distinguished faculty, including the likes of Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P., one of the twentieth century's leading theologians and a great exponent of Thomistic theology, Fr. Jordan Aumann, O.P., Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, O.P., Fr. Aidan Nichols, O.P., Fr. Wojciech Giertych, O.P, who serves as Theologian of the Papal Household under Benedict XVI, and Fr. Charles Morerod, O.P., who sits on the Editorial Board of the international theological journal, "Nova et Vetera"."

Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange was known for his Saturday lectures in the "Aula Magna" of the University, in which he would treat in great depth the most complex and controversial theological topics of the day. [These lectures are recalled by Cardinal Schönborn in his book "The Face of God."]

The faculties all teach in the Italian language, except for the first cycle in sacred theology (S.T.B.) and the "Mater Ecclesiæ Institute" in which it is possible to take in English.

Notable alumni

Among the most illustrious students that the "Angelicum" has numbered within its ranks is Karol Wojtyła, [He earned a Licentiate and later a Doctorate in Sacred Theology. This Doctorate, the first of two, was based on the dissertation "Doctrina de fide apud S. Ioannem a Cruce" (The Doctrine of Faith According to Saint John of the Cross). Even though his doctoral work was unanimously approved in June 1948, he was denied the degree because he could not afford to print the text of his dissertation (an "Angelicum" rule). In December of that year, a revised text of his dissertation was approved by the theological faculty of Jagiellonian University in Kraków, and Wojtyła was finally awarded the degree.] who became Pope John Paul II.
