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.

The 1995 Aquinas Lecture, Mediæval Reactions to the Encounter between Faith and Reason, was delivered in the Tony and Lucille Weasler Auditorium on Sunday, February 26, 1995, by Monsignor John F. Wippel, Ordinary Professor of Philosophy in the School of Philosophy and Academic Vice-President of The Catholic University of America.

Born in Pomeroy, Ohio, John Wippel began his seminary training at St. John Vianney Seminary in Steubenville, Ohio and completed his undergraduate work at The Catholic University of America where he also earned an M.A. in Philosophy and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology. After ordination in 1960 he taught for one year at The Catholic University of America and then pursued doctoral studies at the University of Louvain which awarded him the Ph.D. in 1965.
