Help found New Institute for Medieval Theology & Philosophy at Rome

Appeal by Br. Alexis Bugnolo


Everyone in the Church, who has been attentive to the declines in our Holy Faith and especially in the formation of the clergy and religious of the Church, understands well the need for sound Catholic Education for the clergy and future clergy. This is not only true on account of the disastrous initiatives in our generation to divorce education from truth and virtue, but especially true because of the great number of initiatives which have placed their hope for the formation of minds, not in Christ Jesus, Who is Eternal Truth and Wisdom, but in ideas of cultural Marxism.

Unfortunately, there are few aware enough of the problems, who admire the true fonts of Catholic Education, which lie in Sacred Scripture and the writings of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, most especially in those two great luminaries of minds and men, Saints Thomas Aquinas and Bonaventure of Bagnoregio.

Back in 2016, I launched this dream of true renewal in the form of an institute of Scholastic Theology and Philosophy, a center for Medieval Studies, which would train youth today in the methods which Saints Thomas and Bonaventure preached and promoted.

Today, I can happily announce a new phase in the development of that institute, in the appointment of the Rev. Walter Covens as President, a position he has accepted with the approval of his ordinary in Martinique, Archbishop David Thomas Daniel Macaire, O.P., a Dominican Friar.

But to become a reality for students, this new Institute, The Scholasticum, needs urgently a place to house its activities and faculty and students: where they can study, attend classes, host conferences, sleep and eat, and in a place removed from the hustle and bustle of the city of Rome.

Such a place is currently on the market.

And here are a few photos of the property.

Which has 20 rooms and is about 1250 sq meters of interior space, that is, about 15,000 sq. Feet.

The price is 2.5 million euro. You can read more about this property here.

To savor the quality of education to be offered at our Institute, page through our Annuario which describes our Course Offerings.

While I understand that for most of my readers, that price is beyond their personal capacity, I know that some of them could fully afford it. Whether you can offer financial support for such a project, or purchase the property and allow us the charitable use of it for the institute, I am willing to consider all possibilities. I am willing even to consider offering an investment possibility through Ordo Militaris Inc., a Montana Stock Corporation, to those who would prefer co-investing in this property through an stock offering.

To speak with me personally, leave a message at +1 406 299 9260 by voice.

However, If you would like to contribute to a charitable fund dedicated to outfitting or purchasing such a property, please consider a very generous donation below, either via PayPal or Bank Wire.

Properties like this rarely come on the market in Italy, and thus I see this possibility as sign from the Glorious Saint Joseph, whose feast it is today, that I should ask and let that great Saint inspire you all with a good work for Holy Mother Church.

If we cannot acquire the property or use of this place as depicted above, all funds will be used to rent a place or pay for the expenses to begin classes telematically.

These funds are being collected in 501(c)(3) dedicated funds by Save Old St. Mary’s Inc., a MA 501c3 Charity and Ordo Militaris Inc., a Montana Stock Corporation. No part of these funds will be used for any other purpose than for the Scholasticum.
