You know Thomas Aquinas as one of history’s greatest theologians and philosophers, but did you know he was also a contemplative man of action? This series invites you to take Aquinas as your spiritual guide.

St. Thomas Aquinas, O.P. (1224–1274) towers in the history of Christian thought as a mystic, spiritual master, theologian, philosopher, teacher, and preacher. Along with St. Augustine, his synthesis of Christian teaching and exposition of the truth of the Catholic faith remains unsurpassed in Western Christianity.

Now, this 12-part series (available in audio and video) makes his core teachings accessible and relevant to you today. Your presenter is Fr. Donald Goergen, O.P.—a master of the spiritual life who, like Aquinas before him, is a Dominican. A member of the faculty at the Aquinas Institute of Theology, Fr. Goergen will guide you through the key themes of Aquinas’s thought, including his Summa Theologiae.

Aquinas was an intellectually curious thinker unafraid to change his mind: a man of bold insights deeply committed to the Catholic tradition. As you will experience firsthand, his theology flows as much from his life of prayer as it does from his intellectual acumen.

A prodigious writer, precise thinker, and man devoted to his Dominican way of life, St. Thomas Aquinas is one for the ages. You will treasure this opportunity to glean fresh insights into his legacy.

Father Goergen is a very knowledgeable teacher! Review by Edward Rackus Wesmont, IL USA (Posted on 1/4/2017)
Fall Survey: October 2016
The teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas are the teachings of the Church. Fr. Goergen is an excellent guide. Review by Edward Rackus Westmont, IL USA (Posted on 10/3/2016)
An engaging and accessible introduction to St. Thomas Aquinas.
An engaging and accessible introduction to St. Thomas Aquinas, whose theology and metaphysics can be challenging to an ordinary layperson like me. The course presents good historical context and biographical information, then moves through the highlights of his theology in a way that leaves the listener feeling confidently prepared for further study of Aquinas, and with an appetite for such further study.

Winter Survey: January 2017
I especially appreciate the explanation of terms and concepts that are not necessarily made clear in the original texts, perhaps due to the expectation in the text of other previous knowledge. Review by Todd Caine Camp Hill, PA USA (Posted on 1/5/2017)
good introduction
I am just about finished with these cd's. I never had a course in Aquinas, and, as a Catholic clergy, have always felt a little deficient in that regard. The positive outcome of listening to this course is that Aquinas isn't as much a stranger as before. Necessarily, the course does not go into a lot of depth, but gives a good overview of the structure of his Summa Theologica and his arguments about the nature of faith, grace, human freedom. Review by tk (Posted on 8/14/2013)
great content but hard to follow
I would give this course 5 stars for content, but 1 or 2 for quality of presentation. The lecturer uses so many connective words and side comments that I had trouble following the content. I have had to listen to the course several times to be able to follow what the lecturer is saying. But I am glad I put in the time because I now have a better fundamental grasp of Aquinas.
