Product Description

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.

. . . Aquinas and His Role in Theology is full of synthesis and insight. Experts have considered it to hold some of Chenu's finest pages on Aquinas: there succinct descriptions of church and society in the Middle Ages lead to luminous lines on the interplay of nature and grace. Every reader, beginner or lifelong disciple, will find in this book new perspectives and engaging ideas.
Thomas F. O'Meara, O.P.

A brilliant achievement that will continue to enlighten.

" . . . the book is a pleasure to read and can easily serve as a Thomistic introduction for students on both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
