The Thomistic Institute exists to promote Catholic truth in our contemporary world by strengthening the intellectual formation of university students. The Oxford Chapter is focused on both the intellectual formation of young Catholics, but also with engaging Protestants and those of other religious beliefs or none. The thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Universal Doctor of the Church, is our touchstone. This is achieved by means of public lectures on themes of great contemporary relevance. Events are free and open to the public.
Begun in the USA, the Oxford Chapter of the Thomistic Institute was established in December 2017 as a partnership between the Dominican friars of the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. and the English Province of the Order of Preachers.
You can catch up with all past lectures from each Chapter on the Thomistic Institute SoundCloud.
