David is an award-winning Spanish painter and multidisciplinary artist who lives and  works in Valencia. A devout Catholic, he received the Pontifical Academy Award in 2012 from Pope Benedict XVI for his contribution to the development of Christian humanism in contemporary society. David is currently developing artistic projects in the United States with the support of the President-Director of the Musee du Louvre, the Director of the National Gallery of London and the Pontifical Council of Culture in the Vatican. Since 1999 he has worked with an international group of artists on aesthetics projects for liturgical spaces around the world.

“People see a  landscape, and it  excites them. They feel an aesthetic pleasure, regardless of whether they understand the mathematics behind that beauty. As artists, somehow, we perceive those laws and transform them into curves, lines, colors…Art is a relationship of forms, textures and colors. At the same time art is an interpersonal relationship—a dialogue ultimately with God.” – David Lopez

New Acquisition: Library of Latin Texts

The University Libraries has recently acquired an important scholarly resource, the Library of Latin Texts. The Library contains texts from the beginning of Latin literature to the the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).

The Library of Latin Texts is a searchable full-text database of classical, patristic, medieval and neo-Latin writers. It includes:

  • Literature from Antiquity (Plautus, Terence, Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Titius-Livius, the Senecas, the two Plinys, Tacitus and Quintilian and others).
  • Literature from Patristic Authors (Ambrose, Augustine, Ausonius, Cassian, Cyprian, Gregory the Great, Jerome, Marius Victorinus, Novatian, Paulinus of Nola, Prudentius, Tertullian and others) It also contains non-Christian literature of that period (Ammianus Marcellinus, the Scriptores Historiae Augustae, Claudian, Macrobius and Martianus Cappella).
  • Literature from the Middle Ages (Anselm of Canterbury, Beatus de Liebana, Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St. Thierry, Sedulius Scottus, Thomas à Kempis, Thomas de Celano, the Sentences of Peter Lombard, the Rationale of Guilelmus Durandus and important works by Abelard, Bonaventure, Ramon Llull, Thomas Aquinas, William of Ockham and others).
  • Neo-Latin Literature (decrees from the modern ecumenical Church councils up to Vatican II and translations into Latin of important sixteenth-century works).

The Library of Latin Texts has two parts, Series A and Serllties B. According to the publisher, Series B “is drawn from the existing scholarly editions whereas the Library of Latin Texts – Series A benefits from the additional intensive research work undertaken by the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium'”
