Aquinas' Summa

Monday, August 18th, 2008

We’ve just added a new translation of selected questions from the Summa Theologiae of Thomas Aquinas. These questions are selected to be the most important articles pertaining to the topic of virtue, vice, and gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Summa.

The goal of the translation is to be as easy to read as possible, while remaining entirely faithful to what St. Thomas himself says, rather than replacing it what some other teaching that seems to be simpler than his. In a few cases, when an article seems difficult to understand, or worded in an unnecessarily complicated manner, we’ve added a paraphrase after an article. For the longest articles, we’ve added outlines.
