In Aquinas and His Role in Theology, Marie Dominique Chenu provides a lively and representative overview of the life and writings of the thirteenth-century theologian whom many consider to be the greatest master of Catholic religious thought.
A rich explanation of the prolific and versatile books of Aquinas follows the story of his life's journey through the heart of Europe in the high Middle Ages. Chenu also portrays the religious and spiritual personality of Aquinas, showing how his typically systematic theology is rooted in personal contemplative roots and a passion for pastoral preaching.
Chapters are "The Friar Preacher," "Master in Sacred Theology," "The Contemplative," "The Herald of a New Christianity," "Imago Mundi," "The Virtuous Life," "The Fate of St. Thomas," and "The Works of St. Thomas." Includes illustrations.
Marie Dominique Chenu was a leader in applying historical method to the study of Thomas Aquinas. He published widely in both medieval and contemporary theology.
Paul Philibert, OP, STD, is the author of Seeing and Believing and served as Translator for Liturgy and the Arts, both published by The Liturgical Press. He is also Distinguished Visiting Professor of Church and Society at the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Missouri.
