Aquinas Institute Fall 2017 Courses


1. THE 291 Angels and Demons 3 sem. hours Fr. Clinton Sensat, STL

Description: This course is a rigorous study of Catholic angelology and demonology. Lectures will be based on the the source materials of philosophy, the Bible, the Fathers, and the greater Scholastics. The purpose of this course is to grapple with nature and the activity of spiritual beings as far as possible based on the solid information available. A secondary purpose is to clear away the superstitions, silly notions, and dangerous practices that often plague any discussion of angels and demons. Some of the topics discussed will be the constitution of angelic spirits, angelic intellect and will, the angelic hierarchies, angelic and demonic activity, and the fall of the demons.

Day and Time: Wednesdays 6:00 - 8:45 PM Location: John Paul the Great Academy, 1522 Carmel Dr., Lafayette Classes start: August 23 • Classes end: December 6


2. THE 390 Spiritual Theology 3 sem. hrs Fr. Michael Champagne, CJC, STD

Description: This course will provide an in-depth introduction to Spiritual Theology, which can also be termed the Theology of the Interior Life or the Theology of Christian Perfection.

Spiritual Theology by Jordan Aumann, OP, will provide the principal material for the course.
