Editorial Reviews

"Anyone who loves the writings of Thomas Aquinas will be thrilled with this edition. The Aquinas Institute in Wyoming has embarked on an exciting venture: the Opera Omnia of Thomas Aquinas, in a beautiful and relatively inexpensive edition (hard-back, good quality paper, relatively large print, bound, and bi-lingual (Latin-English). So far they have published the Summa Theologiae, as well as Commentaries on the New Testament (Paul, John, Matthew). I am specifically looking forward to the future edition of his Commentary on the Sentences, as no English translation exists as yet. All in all, a wonderful project - warmly recommended!" - Amazon Review
