The context of these two documents, as well as the third, Dei Verbum, Spiritus Paraclitus (1920) will be discussed. Inspiration, inerrancy, the role of the Church in guiding scholars, and the importance of Scripture for all will be among the topics covered by Professor Scott Nicholson, Associate Academic Dean and Assistant Professor of Theology at Our Seat of Wisdom College.

I was raised on the South Coast of Oregon and earned an A.B. from Cornell in Economics with a concentration in Cornell’s newly-formed Religious Studies program in 1991. During my time at Cornell, I was privileged to have studied under Dr. Gary Rendsberg of the Near Eastern Studies department and Dr. Calum Carmichael in the Comparative Literature department. I then spent the rest of the nineties discerning the priesthood with two different communities and a diocese. During this time I earned a second Bachelor’s degree, this time in philosophy, and a Master’s degree in theology, both from St. Philip’s Seminary in Toronto, where I was blessed to have studied under Father Paul Pearson and Father Juvenal Merriell.
I came to the Academy in the year 2000 in the capacity of Academic Dean. Since the beginning of the Academy I have been involved in both the classroom and academic administration, though my preference is for the classroom. In the second year of the Academy, I became engaged to the Academy’s second Dean of Students, the then Miss Erin Broughton. We were married on June 8, 2002, the feast of Our Lady Seat of Wisdom, Our Lady of Combermere, and (that year), the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We presently have six children.
Over my years at the College, I have taught a wide range of theological subjects. My specialties are Sacred Scripture, Spiritual Theology, and Liturgy, which are united by the common thread of examining how we are drawn to God, a topic I find to be of eternal interest. I firmly believe, in the tradition of St. Augustine and St. Thomas, that teaching ought to flow from prayer. I am particularly devoted to and influenced by, especially in my teaching, Sts. Monica, Jerome, Paula, Augustine, Eustochium, Gregory the Great, Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, Philip Neri, John of the Cross, Francis de Sales, Lawrence of Brindisi, and Theresa of Lisieux. The writings and example of Popes Leo XIII, Pius X, Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI, and Fathers Garrigou-Lagrange, Jean-Baptiste Chautard, Edward Leen, Jordan Auman, and Thomas Dubay have also greatly influenced me.
