Blackfriars Research fellow receives honour.
The Aquinas Institute was established in 2004 under the directorship of Fergus Kerr OP. It aims to foster the study of St Thomas at Oxford through seminars, occasional conferences, summer schools, and programmes that will bring international research scholars to the university each year.
The Institute seeks to foster the study of St Thomas from three perspectives: theological, philosophical, and from the viewpoint of medieval studies.

Fr Richard, who was previously Vice-Regent at Blackfriars, is a member of the University’s Theology Faculty and a part-time lecturer at the Maryvale Institute in Birmingham. He is the author of The Catholic Faith: A Dominican’s Vision.
