Catholicism portal. An immensely influential philosopher , theologian , and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism , he is also known within the latter as the Doctor Angelicus and the Doctor Communis. He was the foremost classical proponent of natural theology and the father of Thomism ; of which he argued that reason is found in God.

His influence on Western thought is considerable, and much of modern philosophy developed or opposed his ideas, particularly in the areas of ethics, natural law , metaphysics , and political theory.

Unlike many currents in the Church of the time, [13] Thomas embraced several ideas put forward by Aristotle —whom he called "the Philosopher"—and attempted to synthesize Aristotelian philosophy with the principles of Christianity.

His best-known works are the Disputed Questions on Truth — , the Summa contra Gentiles — , and the unfinished but massively influential Summa Theologica a. Summa Theologiae — His commentaries on Scripture and on Aristotle also form an important part of his body of work. Furthermore, Thomas is distinguished for his eucharistic hymns, which form a part of the Church's liturgy.

In modern times, under papal directives, the study of his works was long used as a core of the required program of study for those seeking ordination as priests or deacons, as well as for those in religious formation and for other students of the sacred disciplines philosophy, Catholic theology, church history, liturgy, and canon law. Thomas Aquinas is considered one of the Catholic Church's greatest theologians and philosophers.

Thomas was most likely born in the castle of Roccasecca , Aquino , controlled at that time by the Kingdom of Sicily in present-day Lazio , Italy , c.

He was born to the most powerful branch of the family, and Landulf of Aquino was a man of means. As a knight in the service of King Roger II , he held the title miles. Thomas's mother, Theodora, belonged to the Rossi branch of the Neapolitan Caracciolo family. While the rest of the family's sons pursued military careers, [21] the family intended for Thomas to follow his uncle into the abbacy; [22] this would have been a normal career path for a younger son of southern Italian nobility.

At the age of five Thomas began his early education at Monte Cassino but after the military conflict between the Emperor Frederick II and Pope Gregory IX spilled into the abbey in early , Landulf and Theodora had Thomas enrolled at the studium generale university recently established by Frederick in Naples.

Julian, a Dominican preacher in Naples, who was part of the active effort by the Dominican order to recruit devout followers. At the age of nineteen Thomas resolved to join the recently founded Dominican Order. Thomas's change of heart did not please his family. Thomas was held prisoner for almost one year in the family castles at Monte San Giovanni and Roccasecca in an attempt to prevent him from assuming the Dominican habit and to push him into renouncing his new aspiration.

At one point, two of his brothers resorted to the measure of hiring a prostitute to seduce him. According to legend, Thomas drove her away wielding a fire iron and two angels appeared to him as he slept and strengthened his determination to remain celibate. By , seeing that all her attempts to dissuade Thomas had failed, Theodora sought to save the family's dignity, arranging for Thomas to escape at night through his window. In her mind, a secret escape from detention was less damaging than an open surrender to the Dominicans.

James in Paris. But Albertus prophetically exclaimed: "You call him the dumb ox, but in his teaching he will one day produce such a bellowing that it will be heard throughout the world.

Thomas taught in Cologne as an apprentice professor baccalaureus biblicus , instructing students on the books of the Old Testament and writing Expositio super Isaiam ad litteram Literal Commentary on Isaiah , Postilla super Ieremiam Commentary on Jeremiah and Postilla super Threnos Commentary on Lamentations.

He lectured on the Bible as an apprentice professor, and upon becoming a baccalaureus Sententiarum bachelor of the Sentences [36] he devoted his final three years of study to commenting on Peter Lombard 's Sentences. In the first of his four theological syntheses, Thomas composed a massive commentary on the Sentences titled Scriptum super libros Sententiarium Commentary on the Sentences.

Aside from his master's writings, he wrote De ente et essentia On Being and Essence for his fellow Dominicans in Paris. In the spring of Thomas was appointed regent master in theology at Paris and one of his first works upon assuming this office was Contra impugnantes Dei cultum et religionem Against Those Who Assail the Worship of God and Religion , defending the mendicant orders , which had come under attack by William of Saint-Amour.

In Thomas completed his first regency at the studium generale and left Paris so that others in his order could gain this teaching experience. He returned to Naples where he was appointed as general preacher by the provincial chapter of 29 September In September he was called to Orvieto as conventual lector he was responsible for the pastoral formation of the friars unable to attend a studium generale.

Modern scholarship has confirmed that Thomas was indeed the author of these texts, a point that some had contested. This same year he was ordered by the Dominican Chapter of Agnani [44] to teach at the studium conventuale at the Roman convent of Santa Sabina , founded some years before, in Prior to this time the Roman Province had offered no specialized education of any sort, no arts, no philosophy; only simple convent schools, with their basic courses in theology for resident friars, were functioning in Tuscany and the meridionale during the first several decades of the order's life.

The new studium provinciale at Santa Sabina was to be a more advanced school for the province. While at the Santa Sabina studium provinciale Thomas began his most famous work, the Summa theologiae , [42] which he conceived specifically suited to beginning students: "Because a doctor of Catholic truth ought not only to teach the proficient, but to him pertains also to instruct beginners.

As the Apostle says in 1 Corinthians —2, as to infants in Christ, I gave you milk to drink, not meat , our proposed intention in this work is to convey those things that pertain to the Christian religion in a way that is fitting to the instruction of beginners. In November he was with Thomas and his associate and secretary Reginald of Piperno , as they left Viterbo on their way to Paris to begin the academic year.

Thomas remained at the studium at Santa Sabina from until he was called back to Paris in for a second teaching regency. A new convent of the Order at the Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva had a modest beginning in as a community for women converts, but grew rapidly in size and importance after being given over to the Dominicans friars in In the 20th century the college was relocated to the convent of Saints Dominic and Sixtus and was transformed into the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum.

In the Dominican order assigned Thomas to be regent master at the University of Paris for a second time, a position he held until the spring of Part of the reason for this sudden reassignment appears to have arisen from the rise of " Averroism " or "radical Aristotelianism " in the universities. In response to these perceived errors, Thomas wrote two works, one of them being De unitate intellectus, contra Averroistas On the Unity of Intellect, against the Averroists in which he reprimands Averroism as incompatible with Christian doctrine.

Disputes with some important Franciscans conspired to make his second regency much more difficult and troubled than the first. A year before Thomas re-assumed the regency at the —67 Paris disputations, Franciscan master William of Baglione accused Thomas of encouraging Averroists, most likely counting him as one of the "blind leaders of the blind". Eleonore Stump says, "It has also been persuasively argued that Aquinas's De aeternitate mundi was directed in particular against his Franciscan colleague in theology, John Pecham.

In reality, Thomas was deeply disturbed by the spread of Averroism and was angered when he discovered Siger of Brabant teaching Averroistic interpretations of Aristotle to Parisian students. In what appears to be an attempt to counteract the growing fear of Aristotelian thought, Thomas conducted a series of disputations between and De virtutibus in communi On Virtues in General , De virtutibus cardinalibus On Cardinal Virtues , De spe On Hope. In Thomas took leave from the University of Paris when the Dominicans from his home province called upon him to establish a studium generale wherever he liked and staff it as he pleased.

He chose to establish the institution in Naples, and moved there to take his post as regent master. He also preached to the people of Naples every day in Lent, It is traditionally held that on one occasion, in at the Dominican convent of Naples in the chapel of Saint Nicholas , [60] after Matins , Thomas lingered and was seen by the sacristan Domenic of Caserta to be levitating in prayer with tears before an icon of the crucified Christ.

Christ said to Thomas, "You have written well of me, Thomas. What reward would you have for your labor? On 6 December , another mystical experience took place. While he was celebrating Mass, he experienced an unusually long ecstasy. When Reginald begged him to get back to work, Thomas replied: "Reginald, I cannot, because all that I have written seems like straw to me" [63] mihi videtur ut palea.

On his way to the Council, riding on a donkey along the Appian Way , [68] he struck his head on the branch of a fallen tree and became seriously ill again. He was then quickly escorted to Monte Cassino to convalesce. For centuries, there have been recurring claims that Thomas had the ability to levitate.

For example, G. Chesterton wrote that, "His experiences included well-attested cases of levitation in ecstasy; and the Blessed Virgin appeared to him, comforting him with the welcome news that he would never be a Bishop. One aim of this condemnation was to clarify that God's absolute power transcended any principles of logic that Aristotle or Averroes might place on it.

Their inclusion badly damaged Thomas's reputation for many years. In the Divine Comedy , Dante sees the glorified soul of Thomas in the Heaven of the Sun with the other great exemplars of religious wisdom.

But the historian Ludovico Antonio Muratori reproduces the account made by one of Thomas's friends, and this version of the story gives no hint of foul play. Thomas's theology had begun its rise to prestige. Two centuries later, in , Pope Pius V proclaimed St.

Thus, he directed the clergy to take the teachings of Thomas as the basis of their theological positions.

Leo XIII also decreed that all Catholic seminaries and universities must teach Thomas's doctrines, and where Thomas did not speak on a topic, the teachers were "urged to teach conclusions that were reconcilable with his thinking. When the devil's advocate at his canonization process objected that there were no miracles , one of the cardinals answered, " Tot miraculis, quot articulis "—"there are as many miracles in his life as articles in his Summa ".

A monastery at Naples, near the cathedral of St. Januarius , shows a cell in which he supposedly lived. Between and , they were held in the Basilique de Saint-Sernin, Toulouse. In , they were returned to the Church of the Jacobins, where they have remained ever since. When he was canonized, his feast day was inserted in the General Roman Calendar for celebration on 7 March, the day of his death.

Since this date commonly falls within Lent , the revision of the calendar moved his memorial to 28 January, the date of the translation of his relics to Church of the Jacobins , Toulouse. Thomas Aquinas is honored with a feast day in some churches of the Anglican Communion. Thomas Aquinas was a theologian and a Scholastic philosopher. Much of his work bears upon philosophical topics, and in this sense may be characterized as philosophical. Thomas's philosophical thought has exerted enormous influence on subsequent Christian theology, especially that of the Catholic Church, extending to Western philosophy in general.

Thomas stands as a vehicle and modifier of Aristotelianism and Neoplatonism. It is said that Thomas modified both Aristotelianism and Neoplatonism by way of heavy reliance on the Pseudo-Dionysius.

Thomas Aquinas believed "that for the knowledge of any truth whatsoever man needs divine help, that the intellect may be moved by God to its act.

And thus the human understanding has a form, viz. For example, "Aquinas never compromised Christian doctrine by bringing it into line with current Aristotelianism; rather, he modified and corrected the latter whenever it clashed with Christian belief. Thomas's ethics are based on the concept of "first principles of action". Virtue denotes a certain perfection of a power. Now a thing's perfection is considered chiefly in regard to its end.

But the end of power is act. Wherefore power is said to be perfect, according as it is determinate to its act. Thomas emphasized that " Synderesis is said to be the law of our mind, because it is a habit containing the precepts of the natural law, which are the first principles of human actions. According to Thomas " But if we speak of virtuous acts, considered in themselves, i.
