Speaker Bio:

Fr. Bryan Kromholtz, O.P. (S.T.D., University of Fribourg, Switzerland, 2008), is Associate Professor of Theology at the Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology, and a member of the Core Doctoral Faculty of the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California. He is the Regent of Studies of the Dominican Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus (Western U.S.A.), and the author of On the Last Day: The Time of the Resurrection of the Dead according to Thomas Aquinas (Academic Press Fribourg, 2010). 

Lecture Description:

What happens after we die? What does it matter? In this presentation, Fr. Kromholtz will discuss the doctrine of the “resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come,” according to Catholic tradition, particularly in the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas. Our speaker will show that a well-ordered belief in the afterlife not only is a part of faith, but is essential to it.
