Is God Behind COVID-19? w/ Fr. Anthony Giambrone, OP
In this episode, Fr. Anthony Giambrone joins me to talk expand some of the ideas in his recent lecture for the Thomistic Institute entitled "Plagues: What We Can Learn from the Bible." We talk about breakfast with Emmanuel Macron, Albert Camus' The Plague, Thomas Aquinas, King David, and theological continuity between the Old and New Testaments.
Anthony Giambrone, O.P., is a Dominican friar of the Province of St. Joseph (New York) and Professor of New Testament and Vice-Director of the École biblique et archéologique française in Jerusalem. He has authored more than 200 academic and popular publications, focused on a range of biblical and theological themes. His most recent, forthcoming works are One Sacrifice for Sins: A Biblical Theology of the Priesthood (Baker Academic, 2020) and (editor) Rethinking the Jewish War: Archeology, Society, and Traditions (Peeters, 2020). Presently, as a visiting Humboldt Fellow at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, Fr. Giambrone is working on a book exploring the ecclesiology of Acts.
We also mention Fr. Anthony's translation of George Bernanos' Saint Dominic. If you're interested in reading this book, check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1944418482
