I am now a proud new subscriber to Communio, a journal of Catholic theology founded by Hans Urs von Balthasar, Henri de Lubac, and Joseph Ratzinger in 1972. My first issues came in just a few days ago, and I am looking forward to reading them.

Cynthia Nielsen at Per Caritatem has a couple of interesting posts up on the medieval Muslim philosopher Avicenna, who, in many ways provided a basis for later Christian philosophers, including St. Thomas Aquinas. Part 1 Part 2 Excellent reading, especially for those of us who aren't all that familiar with Muslim philosophy.

If you listen to it, let me know what you think.
