You are cordially invited to the Opening Reception of A Postmodern Meditation on The Five Proofs of God

“The Five Proofs of God” is an installation proposal that addresses the quinque viae of Thomas Aquinas and the relationship of language to ways of “knowing.”  In Summa Theologica, Aquinas introduced “Five Ways” the existence of God could be proved.  20th Century scholars have refuted these “Proofs” with various arguments about Aquinas’s concepts.  Cameron Boyd uses both English translations of sections of Aquinas’ text of his “Five Proofs,” as well as text by his detractors, to introduce the idea of God’s existence in the perfect site-specific location of Salve Regina Hall.
