About this Episode
Think of Thomas Aquinas, and the first thing that comes to mind is usually the Summa Theologiae and dogmatic theology. But Aquinas was actually first and foremost a Scripture scholar. Scott Hahn explains what we can learn from this great scholar about placing the Word of God at the forefront of our lives.
So many of St. Thomas Aquinas’ commentaries on Scripture, what he would have considered his major works, were never translated into English. Now, the St. Paul Center and the Aquinas Institute have partnered to translate and publish Aquinas’ complete works.
The theology of Thomas Aquinas isn’t just for the expert scholar. Reading St. Thomas takes a little bit of effort, but there are plenty of ways to dip our toes in and get an understanding of his works. Try these resources for an introduction to Thomas Aquinas:
