Saint Thomas Aquinas, third edition

The Person and His Work

The presentation of the life and work of any great thinker is a formidable task, even for a renowned scholar. This is all the more the case when such a historical figure is a saint and mystic, such as Friar Thomas Aquinas. In this volume, Fr. Jean-Pierre Torrell, OP, masterfully takes up the strenuous task of presenting such a biography, providing readers with a detailed, scholarly, and profound account of the thirteenth-century theologian whose works have not ceased to draw the attention of both friend and foe! In this volume, Fr. Torrell, an internationally renowned expert on St. Thomas, speaks to neophytes and experts alike: for those new to Thomas's works, he paints an engaging human portrait of Friar Thomas in his historical context; for specialists, he provides a rigorous scholarly account of contemporary research concerning Thomas's life and work. This new edition of Fr. Torrell's widely-lauded text involved significant revision, expansion, and bibliographical updates in light of the latest scholarship. The Catholic University of America Press is pleased to present such an eminent specialist's mature synthesis concerning Friar Thomas Aquinas.

Reviews

""Perhaps there is nothing more that one can say about this volume than that there is simply no other book like it. It fills an enormous gap, not just in Aquinas scholarship, but also in the portrait of 'Friar Thomas' as it has come down to us."—American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly

"Torrell's biography is lively in its style and scrupulous as history. It is essential reading for any student of St. Thomas."—Robert Pasnau, University of Colorado Boulder

"This new English edition of Torrell's well-reviewed 1993 biography of Aquinas is a truly splendid account of Aquinas's life and works. It retains all the virtues of the first edition while adding a lot of helpful new material. It also brings readers right up to date on bibliographical matters."—Brian Davies, Fordham University
