Marie-Dominique Philippe

Marie-Dominique Philippe (September 8, 1912 in Nord (French department) – August 26, 2006 in Loire) was a Dominican philosopher and theologian. He was ordained in 1936. He was a professor of philosophy at the University of Fribourg from 1945 to 1982. Although he remained a Dominican he founded the "Community of St. John" in 1975.

In 2013, allegations of inappropriate touching of females were brought against the deceased Father Philippe, although no actual sexual relations were reported or proof given to back up these allegations.[1]
