Special guest at next chapter meeting!

We will have a very special guest at our next regular chapter meeting, which will be Mercy Sunday, April 15. From Wyoming Catholic College, we are delighted to welcome

Peter A. Kwasniewski, Associate Professor of Theology, Assistant Academic Dean
B.A. (Liberal Arts), Thomas Aquinas College, Santa Paula, California; M.A. and Ph.D. (Philosophy), The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.

Dr. Peter Kwasniewski taught courses in the philosophy of nature, philosophical anthropology, metaphysics, moral theology, social ethics and Catholic social doctrine, fundamental theology, Christology, ecclesiology, sacramental theology, eschatology, and biblical theology at the International Theological Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family in Gaming, Austria, from 1998 to 2006. He also lectured on music history for the Austrian Program of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, on medieval philosophy for the Austrian Program of Ave Maria University, and on human rights for the Phoenix Institute Europe Foundation. His articles have appeared in many scholarly and popular journals, including Mediaeval Studies, Communio, Angelicum, The Thomist, The Modern Schoolman, Nova & Vetera, Faith & Reason, Logos, and Homiletic & Pastoral Review. A translation by Dr. Kwasniewski of portions of St. Thomas Aquinas's Commentary on the Sentences, accompanied by introduction and notes, is forthcoming from The Catholic University of America Press.


  1. Hmmmmmm.....that International Theological Institute joint sounds vaguely familiar...... ;-)

  2. I thought you'd catch that...

  3. I just missed him. He put together my curriculum. I was disappointed that I was unable to take some courses from him.

    One thing I really like about the ITI is that the authors of the great texts are the true instructors; not that the professor has no role. Their job is to facilitate the understanding of the Masters and Doctors. They are using the same pedagogical style at WCC.
