The Moral Virtues and Theological Ethics

By Romanus Cessario | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Preparation for the present volume actually began some ten years ago when circumstances at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., obliged me to give some lectures in moral theology. Although theological interest in the moral virtues had not then peaked, the course nonetheless enticed certain students in the Washington Theological Consortium. John Ehmann, "Administrative Director of the University of Notre Dame Press, took note of this course and urged the publication of its scriptum. First of all, then, I would like to express my appreciation to Mr. Ehmann for this initiative and his subsequent encouragement. At the same time, I gratefully recognize the contributions made by the diverse theological students who, for various reasons, assisted at the lectures in Washington.

Although modern technology has moved us far beyond the collaborative methods of the medieval scriptoria, the production of a book-length manuscript still requires the work of different people. I am grateful, then, to Robert Twele, O.F.M. Conv., and Stephen Dominic Hayes, O.P., for their technical assistances and to John McIntyre, S.J., and' Russell Shaw for their literary services. Daniel Bourgeois, Fraternité des Moines Apostoliques, and Peter John Cameron, O.P., also contributed verily and variously to the refinement of the text.

Finally, I owe a debt of gratitude to the Dominican Fathers at the Albertinum, Fribourg ( Switzerland). During
