#041: 5 Intellectual Virtues and Pornography, Art, and Culture [Podcast]

My goal this week is to share with you the 5 Intellectual Virtues according to Saint Thomas Aquinas. I sit down the Brother Bradley Elliott, OP of the Dominicans (and “Fellow” of the New Saint Thomas Institute) and he explains the 5 intellectual virtues and how they relate to the moral life and key topics such as pornography, art, and culture.
