New president of Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas

November 06, 2014

Pope Francis has named Dominican Father Serge Thomas Bonino, the secretary of the International Theological Commission, as the new president of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas.

Founded in 1879, the academy, according to its website, exists “to carry out research into, to defend, and to disseminate the doctrine of the Angelic Doctor, and, taking due account of contemporary cultural traditions, to develop further this part of Thomistic doctrine which deals with humanity.”

Father Bonino succeeds Msgr. Lluís Clavell, an Opus Dei priest who has served in the position since 2009.
