“The truth can be perceived only through thinking”

Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica

 

A rare 16th-century printing of the famous “Summa Theologica” by Thomas Aquinas. This work is considered Aquinas’

“most perfect work, the fruit of his mature years, in which the thought of his whole life is condensed”. (Perrier, 149).

Summa’ makes references to many great thinkers and philosophers who were important during Aquinas’s time – these include Paul the Apostle, Aristotle, Peter Lombard, Cicero, and Saint Augustine.

 

‘Summa’ makes many strong arguments about theology and lawful living including:

  • Theology is the source of divine knowledge and transcends human reason
  • The existence of God, God is not a metaphor
  • Unbelief is the worst of all sins; original sin is unavoidable
  • Collecting interest on loans is unlawful
  • Just price theory – selling something for more/less of its value is unlawful
  • Being a monk is greater than being married
  • Martyrs, teachers, and virgins receive special crowns in heaven

 

This third volume (or second tome) from the famed 1569 Plantin Press edition was published in Antwerp. It should be noted that while this volume is an individual tome from the larger work, it is complete in and of itself and is given its own listing in the USTC. An impressive, complete 16th-century printing of Aquinas.
