Mr. Matthew Chominski Presents at Academic Bonaventure Conference
The Franciscan Institute at St. Bonaventure University offers master classes, programs and conferences throughout the summer. Archmere Academy Theology Department Chair and Theology Teacher, Mr. Matthew Chominski, was invited to present at the Academic Bonaventure Conference the week of July 15th, held at St. Bonaventure University’s beautiful campus in Western New York. Mr. Chominski presented a paper titled, "One or (At Least) Two?: Substantial Form(s) and Hylomorphic Impact on the Resurrection of the Body and the Cult of Relics."
A description of the program follows below:
Quidam enim dicunt: Mendicant Theologies before Aquinas and Bonaventure
"While the writings of Saints Bonaventure of Bagnoregio and Thomas of Aquino continue rightly to attract scholarly attention, their substantial intellectual and literary debts to the preceding generation of scholastics, such as Alexander of Hales, Albert the Great, and others, remains insufficiently appreciated. This conference intends to illuminate the innovative theological currents flowing through the first half of the thirteenth century, especially among early Mendicants, which provided the fertile matrix for the later achievements of Franciscan and Dominican writers in the later Middle Ages, and beyond."
