The Wisdom of Saint Anselm was the third lecture in the Wimmer Memorial Lecture Series (1947-1970) at Saint Vincent and was given in 1949 by Msgr. Gerald B. Phelan (1892-1965), a leading neo-Thomist scholar of his time.
As a professor of philosophy at Saint Michael’s College in Toronto, Canada, he helped found the Toronto Institute for Medieval Studies in 1929. Serving as co-director from 1931 to 1936 and as director from 1936 to 1946, he played a vital part in having the Toronto Institute chartered as Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, the only such institute in North America.
In 1946, he accepted an invitation to become chairman of the philosophy department at the University of Notre Dame, where he subsequently was involved in founding the Notre Dame Institute of Medieval Studies. When he visited Saint Vincent in 1949, Msgr. Phelan was a recognized leader of the Catholic Neo-Scholastic movement in North America, famous in Catholic philosophic circles as a teacher, administrative leader and philosopher.
