2015 : New Publication : Wierzbicki

Fr. Mateusz Wierzbicki of our fraternity in St.Isidores College has published the third book in his series of critical editions of theological work written by Alexander of Hales, OFM.  The present volume is entitled: "Quaestiones disputatae de lapsu angelorum ac protoparentum" ("Questions about the fall of the angels and of our first parents"). This book studies the essence of sin.

Alexander of Hales, from England, lived c.1186-1245, and was Professor of Theology in the University of Paris, the first Franciscan to hold such an office.  He was held in high esteem by many subsequent scholars, including St.Bonaventure, who referred to him as his "father and master."  Like many of his contemporary theologians his views on theology were much broader than became usual in subsequent ages, much closer to theological thinking today.

January 15, 2016.  A group of Irish and Italian people, meeting in the University Roma Tre to commemorate the centenary of the Rising in Dublin in 1916, finished their session with a visit to St.Isidores, where Micheal gave them a brief history of the house, where there were readings from writings of some participants in the Rising, and some traditional Irish music presented by Comhaltas Ceoltoiri na Roimhe.
