This reader’s guide to the Summa Theologica describes the context Aquinas’ compendium of Catholic theology emerged in, and seeks to guide the reader to an understanding as close to Aquinas’ originally meaning as possible. Loughlin also chronicles the history of how the Summa Theologica has been received, and the influence it has had through the centuries.
