Thomas More College is essentially conceived as a community of learners dedicated to renewing the spirit of liberal arts as it has been developed since the first universities in the Middle Ages.
Catholicism is manifested in the College not merely as one among many religions with unique observances and beliefs, but as an approach to reality that is implicit in all aspects of the institution's life.
The College seeks to teach with a Catholic outlook, that is, in light of the Catholic understanding of the person - of human nature, power, and destiny - fostering patterns of action that are connatural with a Catholic sensibility.
Thomas Aquinas (1225 - 1274; of Aquino, Italy) was an Italian philosopher and theologian known as the Angelic Doctor.
Thomas also continued in the spirit of Albert the Great to lay a foundation of legitimacy for the Christian study of natural phenomena that allowed Christian Europe to proceed to the initial stages of the scientific revolution.
It was presented to the College by the citizens of Rocca Secca in the spring of 1993 and brought to campus by the then U.S. Ambassador to Italy, Peter Secchia.
