The Brisbane Oratory is proud to welcome the prominent Catholic professor and writer Dr Peter Kwasniewski to Brisbane as part of his national tour sponsored by the Latin Mass Society of Australia. Coinciding with the fiftieth anniversary of the promulgation of the Apostolic Constitution Missale Romanum (1969), the tour promises to be a fascinating and timely analysis of the events and documents which led to the current liturgical landscape. This tour will be an opportunity for non-emotive and intellectual debate, factual and historical critique, and a genuine openness to authentic liturgical renewal. Here in Brisbane, Dr Peter Kwasniewski will be speaking on the centrality of the Roman Canon in Catholic worship. The theme of his lecture is “The Roman Canon as Principle of Identity, Dogmatic Symbol, and Ritual Anchor.”
Peter Kwasniewski holds a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Thomas Aquinas College and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy from The Catholic University of America. After teaching at the International Theological Institute in Austria and for the Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Austrian Program, he joined the founding team of Wyoming Catholic College in Lander, Wyoming, where he taught theology, philosophy, music, and art history, and directed the choir and schola. He is now a full-time author, speaker, editor, publisher, and composer.
Dr. Kwasniewski has published seven books, including Sacred Choral Works (Corpus Christi Watershed, 2014); Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis (Angelico, 2014); Noble Beauty, Transcendent Holiness (Angelico, 2017); A Reader in Catholic Social Teaching (Cluny, 2017); and Tradition and Sanity (Angelico, 2018). Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis has been published in Czech, Polish, German, Belarusian, and Portuguese, and will soon appear in Spanish. He writes for several major websites, including OnePeterFive, New Liturgical Movement, Rorate Caeli, and LifeSite News.
