“The truth can be perceived only through thinking”

Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica

 

A rare 19th-century printing of the famous “Summa Theologica” by Thomas Aquinas. This work is considered Aquinas’ “most perfect work, the fruit of his mature years, in which the thought of his whole life is condensed”. (Perrier, 149). ‘Summa’ makes references to many great thinkers and philosophers who were important during Aquinas’s time – these include Paul the Apostle, Aristotle, Peter Lombard, Cicero, and Saint Augustine.

 

‘Summa’ makes many strong arguments about theology and lawful living including:

  • Theology is the source of divine knowledge and transcends human reason
  • The existence of God, God is not a metaphor
  • Unbelief is the worst of all sins; original sin is unavoidable
  • Collecting interest on loans is unlawful
  • Just price theory – selling something for more/less of its value is unlawful
  • Being a monk is greater than being married
  • Martyrs, teachers, and virgins receive special crowns in heaven
