New Blackfriars

Cover image for Vol. 93 Issue 1043
I just received some rather fun and exciting news today. New Blackfriars, the Journal of the English Province of the Dominican Order, has agreed to publish an essay I composed last year on the subject of the disagreement between Ratzinger and Aquinas over the date of the Last Supper. Ratzinger says that it happened on the 13th day of the month of Nisan (which would mean that it wasn't really a proper Jewish Passover meal). Aquinas holds that it happened on the 14th of Nisan (I agree).

Kudos to you!

Congrats! Nice to have more published work--all the better to impress admissions people at ND.

Not to mention impressing your family back home!

Ratzinger follows John's schedule for the Passion events, while you and Aquinas follow the synoptics. Rushing (ignorantly, no doubt) in where angels fear to tread, I think I'm with the pope on this one.

John said...

Well I call that bold! Siding with the Pope over your own son-in-law!

But that's only half the story. The Pope follows St John, indeed, but I side with Aquinas in following all four Gospels. And that's the real kicker.
