The Osservatore Romano, Dec. 9-10, 1950 lists Garrigou-Lagrange among the names of the preparatory commission for the definition of the [[Assumption of Mary]].ref
Garrigou-Lagrange taught many eminent Catholic theologians during his academic career at the Angelicum.
Garrigou-Lagrange also supervised the doctoral research of [[Marie-Dominique Chenu]], who being ordained in 1919, completed his doctorate in theology in 1920 with a dissertation entitled De contemplatione.ref
In the period between World War II and the Cold War Garrigou-Lagrange was the "torchbearer of orthodox [[Thomism]]" against Modernism.ref He is commonly held to have influenced the decision in 1942 to place the privately circulated book Une école de théologie: le Saulchoir (Étiolles 1937) by [[Marie-Dominique Chenu]] on the Vatican's "Index of Forbidden Books" as the culmination of a polemic within the [[Dominican Order]] between the Angelicum supporters of a speculative scholasticism and the French revival Thomists who were more attentive to historical hermeneutics.ref
Garrigou-Lagrange gave the retreat in Paris which attracted [[Yves Congar]] to leave the diocesan seminary in order to join the Dominicans.ref Later, Congar's methodology was suspected of Modernism because it seemed to derive more from religious experience than from syllogistic analysis.ref
Garrigou-Lagrange also supervised the doctoral research of [[Maurice Zundel]] who completed his dissertation in 1927 with a dissertation entitled L'Influence du nominalisme sur la pensée chrétienne.ref
Perhaps the most famous of his students was the future [[Pope John Paul II]], who was supervised by Garrigou-Lagrange for his doctoral research in the mid-1940s at the [[...|Angelicum]], and whose [[Papal encyclical|encyclical]] [[Fides et Ratio]] is attributed to his training under the learned Dominican.
