Room 9204 Graduate Center City University of New York 365 5th Avenue
Christ Among the Medieval Mendicants commemorates the 750th anniversary of the establishment of Corpus Christi as a universal feast day (1264) and the 750th anniversary of the Barcelona Disputation between Dominican Friar Paul Christian and Rabbi Moses Nachmanides (1263). 2013 is also (arguably) the 750th anniversary of St. Thomas Aquinas' composing the Summa Contra Gentiles, as well as the Office and Hymns of Corpus Christi. His Dominican superior, St. Raymond of Peņafort, is said to have been the inspiration for both the SCG and Disputation. Various experts will present on Eucharist and Evangelization.
