Aquinas' Commentaries on St Paul to be published

I was delighted to read this, I've been hoping these would appear in translation for a long time. There are some very important passages in these commentaries which are widely quoted, but of course we all need to read them in context. And we can't all read the Latin without a little help! Facing translation? that'll do nicely!

St Thomas Aquinas was a theologian as well as a philosopher, indeed a theologian first and foremost, despite being one of the greatest philosophers of all time. These commentaries on some of the most important and difficult passages of Scripture are of perennial significance for Catholic theology, as well as shedding light on many philosophical issues.


The Aquinas Institute for the Study of Sacred Doctrine is pleased to announce the publication this summer of St. Thomas's Commentaries on the Letters of Paul.  This publication brings all the great Pauline commentaries together for the first time in a uniform hardcover bilingual edition, with Latin and English in parallel columns.  Visit our website to view PDFs of sample pages and to read more about this and other projects under way.

Between now and July 16, The Aquinas Institute is offering you an opportunity to buy, at a discount rate, the Commentary on Romans, or the entire set of Pauline commentaries, or even to reserve your copy of other works nearing completion: the Summa theologiae, the Commentary on John, and the Commentary on Matthew.  Click here for more information.
