* Time for a dose of scholasticism! The Everyday Thomist discusses A Thomistic Response to N. T. Wright on Metaphysics, Trinitarian Formulas, and the Historical Jesus. James Chastek of "Just Thomism" looks at the same topic a step farther back in If you don't like Scholasticism, don't study it. Meanwhile, Ralph McInerny has a post at "The Catholic Thing," Philosophia Perennis, which Lee Faber at "The Smithy" discusses in Thomistic Mediations; Or, a Scotist Looks at Vatican II.
