Below is a brief history of the University of Dallas Aquinas Lecture:

Since 1982, the Philosophy Department has hosted an annual Aquinas Lecture. In the spirit of St. Thomas Aquinas himself, the goal of the lecture series is to develop contemporary Catholic thought in close dialogue with the tradition—above all, of course, with Aquinas’s own work. The speakers invited have covered a broad spectrum of Thomism, some attempting to defend traditional teachings against contemporary challenges, others endeavoring to develop Thomism in more of a give and take with current ideas. One important feature of the Aquinas Lecture has to do with the events surrounding it: the Aquinas Lecturer is usually invited to stay in Irving for a few days, teach a seminar on a text of his or her choice, share meals with faculty, and speak informally with students. This creates the opportunity for the community to engage in a genuine exchange, rather than just listening to an individual lecture. The Aquinas Lecture and most of the events associated with it are open to the general public.
