ACPA Satellite Sessions

At the fall 2013 meeting of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, the Institute for Saint Anselm Studies sponsored a satellite session on Saint Anselm and his thought. The title of the session was Augustine, Anselm, and Aquinas on the Human Person. Three papers were given in the session: "Human Deiformity in the Thought of Augustine and Anselm" by Fr. David Meconi, S.J., "The Human Person and Anselm's Doctrine of the Imago Dei" by Kevin McMahon, and "Imago Dei in Thomas Aquinas" by Montague Brown. A longer version of Fr. Meconi's paper was published as "Anselm and Appropriating the Divine Life" in The Saint Anselm Journal 8.2 (Spring 2013). The Saint Anselm Journal is pleased to publish the other two papers from the session in this issue.

The Saint Anselm Lecture

The Saint Anselm Journal is also pleased to publish the 2012 Saint Anselm Lecture, presented by Eileen C. Sweeney, entitled "Anselm on Human Finitude: A Dialogue with Existentialism."

Paper from Anselm Conference

Finally, we are pleased to include a paper by Katherin Rogers, entitled "Anselm of Canterbury on Freedom and Truth," presented in an earlier form at the Fifth Saint Anselm Conference: Church, State and the Life of Faith, sponsored by The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies, April 10-12, 2014.
