Last updated

Timothy Suttor (11 May 1926, New South Wales, Australia  1997, Spain) was a Catholic theologian noted for his work editing Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologiae, v.11 [1] as well as his original book Hierarchy and democracy in Australia, 1788-1870 : the formation of Australian Catholicism, published in 1965. [2] [3]

After converting to Catholicism in his late teens and spending years studying for the priesthood under the Dominicans, Suttor changed course in 1955, married, and began a career as a Catholic academic. He was remembered by Australian poet Geoffrey Lehmann as something of a poet himself. [4] Suttor moved to Canada in 1964 where he taught at the University of Toronto (1964-1968) and the University of Windsor (1968-1984). He died in Malaga, Spain in 1997. [5]

Germany–Holy See relations Bilateral relations

Formal diplomatic relations between the Holy See and the current Federal Republic of Germany date to the 1951 and the end of the Allied occupation. Historically the Vatican has carried out foreign relations through nuncios, beginning with the Apostolic Nuncio to Cologne and the Apostolic Nuncio to Austria. Following the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire and the Congress of Vienna, an Apostolic Nuncio to Bavaria replaced that of Cologne and that mission remained in Munich through several governments. From 1920 the Bavarian mission existed alongside the Apostolic Nuncio to Germany in Berlin, with which it was merged in 1934.
