Our Thomistic Circles Conferences at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. bring together prominent professors (principally in theology and philosophy), graduate students, seminarians, and Dominican brothers, to provide a forum to examine contemporary questions from the perspective of classical Catholic theology, and to encourage the renewal of theology and philosophy in the Thomistic tradition.
These conferences are distinctive not because of their academic quality, but also because they take place in the context of a vibrant Dominican studium and religious community, so that, as befits the Dominican tradition, the serious study of theology and philosophy is integrated with the contemplation of the mysteries of the faith.
Thomistic Circles have been held under the auspices of the faculty at the Dominican House of Studies (founded in Washington D.C. in 1905) for most of its history.
