More About Thomas Aquinas

Thomas Aquinas Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) lived at a critical juncture of western culture when the arrival of the Aristotelian corpus in Latin translation reopened the question of the relation between faith and reason, calling into question the modus vivendi that had obtained for centuries. This crisis flared up just as universities were being founded. Thomas, after early studies at Montecassino, moved on to the University of Naples in 1244, where he met members of the new Dominican Order. It was at Naples too that Thomas had his first extended contact with the new learning. When he joined the Dominican Order he went north to study with Albertus Magnus, author of a paraphrase of the Aristotelian corpus. Thomas completed his studies at the University of Paris, which had been formed out of the monastic schools on the Left Bank and the cathedral school at Notre Dame. In two stints as a regent master Thomas defended the mendicant orders and, of greater historical importance, countered both the Averroistic interpretations of Aristotle and the Franciscan tendency to reject Greek philosophy. The result was a new modus vivendi between faith and philosophy which survived until the rise of the new physics. The Catholic Church has over the centuries regularly and consistently reaffirmed the central importance of Thomas's work for understanding its teachings concerning the Christian revelation, and his close textual commentaries on Aristotle represent a cultural resource which is now receiving increased recognition.

He was formally canonized in 1323.

Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225 and died in 1274.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Concise Translation  Feb 15, 2008
Very concise translation, though not bilingual (Latin-English), by the English Dominican Fathers. It is not irrelevant that a translation from ancient texts be both accurate and simple, as to overcome unnecessary language roundabouts.
The main concern, from my own perspective, is the lack of reference to the Latin texts from which it has been translated. Despite of this handicap, after reading a little of St. Thomas, I would risk that undoubtfully it should be based upon a recognized Aquinas's works edition like the Leonine, for instance.
Quite useful.
