Several volumes are also accompanied by the best Latin critical editions for unparalleled access to the thought of the Angelic Doctor of the Church.
This incredible collection includes the three-volume commentary on the Gospel of John, into which Aquinas poured his theological, pastoral, and exegetical genius, as well as his incredibly deep knowledge of the writings and commentaries from such Church Fathers as Augustine, Origen, and Chrysostom. Also included are Aquinas’ exposition and commentary on several of history’s most influential works of philosophy and theology, from Aristotle, Boethius, and Peter Lombard. In the most recent volume of the series, On Creation [Quaestiones Disputatae de Potentia Dei, Q. 3], Aquinas exhibits his intellectual prowess and offers timely insight today’s Church on such perennial issues as divine and human freedom, whether or not the world is created, the problem of evil, and the status of the developing human embryo.

Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) entered the Benedictine abbey of Montecassino at the age of five to begin his studies. He was transferred to the University of Naples at age 16, 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’ 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 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.
