Thomas Aquinas

This chapter examines the nature of Thomas Aquinas’ intellectual project. It begins by considering a view of Aquinas that is believed to be wrong — the view of Aquinas as one who is engaged in a philosophical project that can at least in principle be detached from any theological project that he might also have been pursuing. It then looks at how he understood the role of the catholicae veritatis doctor by considering the inaugural lecture that formed part of the ceremonies surrounding his inception as a master in the faculty of theology at Paris in 1256. The discussion then turns to the position Aquinas maps out in the ten articles of the opening question in the Summa theologiae concerning the nature of sacra doctrina as scientia. This is followed by discussions of the influence of Aristotle in Aquinas’ thought and the question of philosophy and its relationship to sacra doctrina.

Keywords:   Thomas Aquinas, intellectual project, lectures, catholicae veritatis doctor, scientia, Summa theologiae, philosophy, sacra doctrina, Artistotle
