Aquinas on the Trinity Recorded Course

Sr. Magdalene is offering an online series of recordings of a course on Aquinas’ teaching on the Trinity.

Throughout the course, we will be exploring the revelation of the Trinity with St. Thomas Aquinas! We will be reading some of his texts from the Summa Theologiae, as well as his commentary on the Gospel of John, contemplating both the doctrine and the scriptural foundations of this beautiful, central tenet of our faith more deeply.

You will be sent a password to watch a series of eight videos, one each week, and will have access to the course material that goes with each class.

We are asking for a donation of  £ 40 for the 8-week course (£5 per session). To donate, please go to our donations page.  

Please see the syllabus below.
