Talking about the Triune God...

On 23 June 2004 the Thomas Instituut te Utrecht held a morning of study about 'The Triune God: Analogy and Appropriation'. Lectures were given by prof. dr. Jozef Wissink, dr. Harm Goris and dr. Eric Luijten. Dr. Henk Schoot lead the discussion.
One year ago Eric Luijten - former researcher at the Thomas Instituut te Utrecht and now rector of studies of the education to the priesthood at the archdiocese Utrecht and the diocese Groningen - succesfully defended his doctoral thesis Sacramental Forgiveness as a Gift of God - Thomas Aquinas on the Sacrament of Penance. During this defence a few points of the discussion had to be left unfinished because of the time alowed. To continue the discussion the Thomas Instituut organised this morning of studies which focussed on the question of appropriation in the theology of Thomas Aquinas and in relation to analogy.
