Paths of Love is a personal blog of Joseph Bolin, where I express my thoughts on themes relating to spiritual and Christian life, especially the universal vocation to love and holiness, on themes that I am working on academically, or on other topics that I am asked about or am interested in.
I received my bachelor's degree in liberal arts from Thomas Aquinas College, a Masters and Licentiate in sacred theology from the International Theological Institute in Austria, and am currently writing a doctoral dissertation in theology for the University of Vienna.
I have taught Latin courses for the Austrian Program of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, philosophy and theology for the International Theological Institute, and lectured on ethics for the Seminary of the Servants of Jesus and Mary. My focus is on St. Thomas Aquinas, and I have translated into English the questions of Aquinas's Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard concerning the moral virtues and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
I am a diocesan priest of the Archdiocese of Vienna, and Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology for the International Theological Institute.
