Overview

The Sentences of Peter Lombard—composed in the mid-twelfth century—was largely a collection of patristic sayings covering the whole body of Christian doctrine. The Sentences was the standard theological textbook until the sixteenth century and writing a commentary on it was a rite of passage of sorts, normally completed during a professor’s first few years of teaching, during which time he lectured on the text. Aquinas’ first major theological work was such a commentary. Aquinas’ Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard (Scriptum super libros Sententiarum), was written between 1252 and 1256 when he was in his late twenties and a “bachelor,” or apprentice professor, at the University of Paris. Of Aquinas’ three major works of theology, Summa Theologica and the Summa Contra Gentileshave been translated, while his Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard has not.

As with most of the genre, Aquinas’ Commentary is not really a commentary at all. Rather, the Sentences provides jumping off points for what amounts to a theological summa. Aquinas' more famous work, such as the Summa Theologica, is often greatly elucidated by his Commentary, and no understanding of Thomas Aquinas' thought can be definitive without its consultation. Indeed, many of the problems Thomas sought to explicate throughout his career, such as the relationship between Aristotelian philosophy and Augustinian theology, were first extensively posed and explored in his Commentary. Among other important topics, the Commentary offers Aquinas’ most sustained treatment of sacramental theology and ecclesiology.

Aquinas' Commentary on the Sentences has had wide influence through to the present and is widely cited by theologians. Its translation into English will be a monumental contribution to Thomist studies. What’s more, the Logos edition of the Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard: English and Latin (8 vols.) combines the 4-volume Latin text and the 4-volume English text into two individual electronic books, which means you can utilize the power of your digital library to read the Latin and English side-by-side!

With the Logos edition of Aquinas' Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard: English and Latin (8 vols.), references to the Church Fathers and other early and medieval texts are also linked, allowing you to click your way through the history of the church and across the theological spectrum. That makes the Logos edition of Aquinas' Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard: English and Latin (8 vols.) a vital tool for research on the theology of Aquinas and the preeminent academic standard for both Latin scholarship and English-only studies!

About St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225 in what is now Italy. He entered the Benedictine abbey of Montecassino at the age of five to begin his studies. He was transferred to the University of Naples at the age of sixteen, where he became acquainted with the revival of Aristotle and the Order of the Dominicans. Aquinas went on to study in Cologne in 1244 and Paris in 1245. He then returned to Cologne in 1248, where he became a lecturer.

Aquinas’s career as a theologian took him all over Europe. In addition to regularly lecturing and teaching in cities throughout Europe, Aquinas participated regularly in public life and advised both kings and popes.

Thomas Aquinas died on March 7, 1274 while traveling to the Second Council of Lyons. Fifty years after his death, Pope John XXII proclaimed Aquinas a saint. The First Vatican Council declared Aquinas the “teacher of the church.” In 1879, Pope Leo XII declared the Summa Theologica the best articulation of Catholic doctrine, and Aquinas was made the patron saint of education.

Thomas Aquinas has also profoundly influenced the history of Protestantism. He wrote prolifically on the relationship between faith and reason, as well as the theological and philosophical issues which defined the Reformation.
