Overview

Aquinas at Prayer draws attention to important aspects of Aquinas’ life and work which have been all too often overlooked or forgotten. Today Aquinas is almost exclusively regarded as an outstanding scholastic philosopher and theologian. But what is little known is that Aquinas was, first and last, a teacher of the Bible. Moreover there is a distinctly mystical character to his theology. And, as a writer, he was arguably the greatest Latin poet of the Middle Ages. The primary focus of this engaging new book is to explore the question of Aquinas’ own practice of prayer and his teaching on prayer in his commentaries on the Psalms and St. Paul. The book is strengthened by quotations from Aquinas in fresh translations.
