More About Thomas Aquinas, Peter A. Kwasniewski & Thomas Bolin
Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) lived at a critical juncture of western culture when the arrival of the Aristotelian corpus in Latin translation reopened the question of the relation between faith and reason, calling into question the modus vivendi that had obtained for centuries. This crisis flared up just as universities were being founded. Thomas, after early studies at Montecassino, moved on to the University of Naples in 1244, where he met members of the new Dominican Order. It was at Naples too that Thomas had his first extended contact with the new learning. When he joined the Dominican Order he went north to study with Albertus Magnus, author of a paraphrase of the Aristotelian corpus. Thomas completed his studies at the University of Paris, which had been formed out of the monastic schools on the Left Bank and the cathedral school at Notre Dame. In two stints as a regent master Thomas defended the mendicant orders and, of greater historical importance, countered both the Averroistic interpretations of Aristotle and the Franciscan tendency to reject Greek philosophy. The result was a new modus vivendi between faith and philosophy which survived until the rise of the new physics. The Catholic Church has over the centuries regularly and consistently reaffirmed the central importance of Thomas's work for understanding its teachings concerning the Christian revelation, and his close textual commentaries on Aristotle represent a cultural resource which is now receiving increased recognition.
He was formally canonized in 1323.
Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225 and died in 1274.

Fantastic Translation! Apr 10, 2010
This is the first major work on translating St. Thomas' Commentary on the Sentences. It is of course a selection (not the whole commentary) on his questions on love and charity. This is the work of translators who are not only skilled latinists but have a deep understanding of the thought of St. Thomas. These skills come across in the footnotes (which are extremely helpful in understanding why the translation is what it is at difficult points and includes the Latin at these points for reference) and the great webnotes that were written for the text ([...]). These texts are helpful to understand St. Thomas in a deeper way on love and charity which is sometimes a very difficult topic. I highly recommend these texts from Thomas and this translation (if indeed it must be read in translation).
