A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH
OF FR. ROGER-THOMAS CALMEL

Fr. Roger-Thomas Calmel, O.P. (1914-1975), was a prominent French Dominican and Thomist philosopher, who made an immense contribution to the fight for Catholic Tradition through his writings and conferences.

His most enduring influence is through the traditional Dominican Teaching Sisters of Fanjeaux and Brignole in France who operate 12 girls' schools in France and the US.

Before Vatican II, Fr. Calmel formed the founding members of these communities, specifically giving them the philosophical and pedagogical principles to educate Catholic girls in a de-christianized, secular and modernist environment.

With the outbreak of the current crisis in the Church, these sisters, thanks to Fr. Calmel, were already well prepared.
