This collection of scholarly essays engages historical, theological, and exegetical dimensions of St. Thomas Aquinas’s Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews. These studies belong to an approach that is known as “Biblical Thomism,” which pursues the retrieval of Aquinas’s biblical commentaries as well as his patristic sources as part of a constructive response to the Second Vatican Council’s emphasis on Scripture as being the soul of sacred theology.


Matthew Levering (PhD, Boston College) is the James N. Jr. and Mary D. Perry Chair of Theology at Mundelein Seminary and the author or editor of numerous books treating Aquinas’s theology and biblical exegesis.

Piotr Roszak (PhD, University of Navarra) is an ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy of Saint Thomas Aquinas and head of the Biblical Thomism Research Laboratory at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, Poland.

Jorgen Vijgen (PhD, Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas) is an ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy of Saint Thomas Aquinas and professor at the major seminary of the Diocese of Haarlem-Amsterdam, the Netherlands.


For much of Christian history the Letter to the Hebrews was among the most deeply mined texts in all of scripture, a central source of doctrine on Christ’s divinity and humanity, his eternal priesthood, his sacrifice and that of his people, the communion of saints, and much else.  Over the last two centuries historical criticism has largely neglected the letter, unable to determine its author and baffled by what it says.  Taking its lead from one of the tradition’s great commentators on Hebrews, this welcome volume points us once again to the riches of this singular text of sacred scripture.
