The Wisconsin-Alpha Chapter of Phi Sigma Tau, The National Honor Society for Philosophy at Marquette University, each year invites a scholar to deliver a lecture in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas whose feast day is March 7. These lectures are customarily given on the first or second Sunday of March.
The 1968 Aquinas Lecture The Subject was delivered on March 3 in the Peter A. Brooks Memorial Union by Rev. Bernard Lonergan, S.J., professor of Dogmatic Theology, Regis College (Ontario) and Gregorian University (Rome).
Fr. Lonergan was born in Buckingham, Quebec, on December 17,1904. He earned the B.A. at the University of London in 1930, the S.T.D. at the Gregorian University in 1940. He taught theology at L'Immaculée Conception (Montreal) from 1940-1947. From that date until 1953 he was professor of Dogmatic Theology at the Jesuit Seminary (Toronto) and for the next twelve years held the same position . . .
