Cornelio Fabro, a Stigmatine priest, is one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. He was born in Flumignano on August 24, 1911. For decades he undertook an exemplary pastoral apostolate in the parish Santa Croce al Flaminio (Rome) while simultaneously dedicating himself to the intensive work of teaching at numerous universities, both pontifical and public.Fabro was internationally recognized for his Thomistic studies, characterized by a historic-critical re-thinking of the texts of Saint Thomas from the perspective of the notion of participation, his encounter with modern thought (particularly Hegel and Heidegger), as well as for his studies and translations of Kierkegaard. His intellectual output includes some 30 books and over 900 articles.
Sister (Suor) Rosa Goglia (of the Congregation of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ), professor of philosophy, history, and the science of education, received her doctorate under the direction of the philosopher Cornelio Fabro with the thesis "The Personality of God in G. F. W. Hegel." She worked closely with Fabro especially from 1978 until 1995, the year of Fabro's death.As a scholar, like Fabro, Goglia is the author of numerous volumes, including: Cornelio Fabro, filosofo della libertà [Cornelio Fabro, philosopher of freedom], Genoa, 2000; La novità metafisica in Cornelio Fabro. Linee ermeneutiche delle opere. Nota biografica e bibliografia degli scritti [Metaphysical novelty in Cornelio Fabro: Hermeneutic lines of his works. Biographical Profile and Bibliography of His Writings], Marsilio, Venice, 2004; and many more.With regard to Fabro's thought, she has actively contributed to a number of critical works found in assorted volumes and has also published other short biographical and intellectual profiles of the Friulan philosopher in various journals, including Filosofia Oggi, Divus Thomas, La Via, Silarus, and Doctor Communis.Currently, she is an active collaborator with the "Cornelio Fabro Cultural Project - Complete Works."
