Drinking on the job (coffee), me at the the FI book stall.

Two book stalls, the FIs and another local theological book seller toward the back.

+

Much of the art in the building was modern and strange but I liked this one.

+

The library was pretty nice.

They had some beautiful models of churches on display in the lobby.

Here’s another

These attentive attendees are also presenters.

Even Dominicans can enjoy a good Scotistic talk

+

“Wait, are you trying tell me that prime matter actually exists?!!”

Just kidding, making up a Franciscan caption. (Whether prime matter exists by itself or not is a hotly debated subject between Franciscans and Dominicans but such contentious issues were not discussed at the symposium)

+

Sr. Mary Beth Ingham gives the Keynote Address for the Symposium.

Fr. Edward Ondrako gives his lecture

Clearing up those lingering questions
