In this chapter the modern questioning of faith in the academic context is first resituated within the current trends of a late modern reading of culture, through reflection on qualitative data gained in research with Catholic schools leaders in England and Wales. The question is raised: how might a distinctively Catholic pedagogy be drawn from a theology of the person? In response to this question the argument turns to the Thomas Aquinas’ account of Christian pedagogy, which demonstrates a deeply theological and anthropological reading of faith and intellect from which late modern educators can learn. The chapter thus seeks to articulate for our own time a theology of the ‘faith-full intellect’ as a fundamental quality of personhood of deep significance to teaching and learning.
