Overview

The thirteenth century Italian Dominican friar, Thomas Aquinas was a philosopher, theologian and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism. His two masterpieces, the Summa Theologiae and Summa contra Gentiles, helped develop the classical systematisation of Latin theology, while as a poet he produced some of the finest eucharistic hymns in the church’s liturgy. The foremost classical proponent of natural theology, Thomas had an immense influence on Western thought, as much of modern philosophy developed or opposed his ideas, especially in areas of ethics, natural law, metaphysics and political theory. This comprehensive eBook presents Thomas Aquinas’ collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare translations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
