Scripture Commentary by St. Thomas Aquinas

While St. Thomas Aquinas is well known for his Summa Theologiae, most people don't realize that he actually wrote even more extensively on Scripture. As far as I know, this is all that is available on the internet. If anyone knows of any other commentaries by Aquinas that are online, PLEASE leave a comment and let me know. It is a shame that more of his works on Scripture have not been translated and/or made available on the internet.

Before you begin reading his commentaries, it would be helpful to know how Aquinas understands and interprets Scripture. I suggest the following articles:
Here are his commentaries:
Also see the Index of Scripture References in the Summa Theologiae for a good indication of how he understands many, MANY other passages from the Bible.

St. Thomas Aquinas, Angelic Doctor and the Church's greatest theologian ... pray for us.

Pax Christi,

All links on this page have been fixed, and one new link has been added: Aquinas' commentary on the Letter to the Romans.

This is a gem (if you read latin): http://www.corpusthomisticum.org/

All the links have been fixed ... again. The instability of the internet gets on my nerves.

Could you please fix the link to the commentary on Romans?

Thanks!

Nicholas Hardesty said...

I fixed the link for the Letter to the Hebrews. I'm afraid the commentary on the Letter to the Romans is not available anymore. If someone ever finds that online, please let me know!

Nicholas Hardesty said...

Check that! Aquinas' commentary on Romans is available now. I fixed the link.

The link to Romans is down again. Does anybody know where I can get a copy?

Nicholas Hardesty said...

I came upon a goldmine today:
https://aquinas.cc

This allowed me to add the following commentaries to the list:
- Isaiah
- 2 Thes
- 1 Tim
- 2 Tim
- Titus

For the commentaries I already had, I added a link from this site as an additional option.

You're welcome!

thanks for the links! btw, are you from phatmass?

Nicholas Hardesty said...

Navo ... Yes I am! That's where I came up with my username. I haven't posted there regularly in years, but I use to be a prominent member of the forum ... err, excuse me, "phorum." One of the reasons I created this blog was to collect in one place all of the apologetical material I had written in various posts over there.

navo said...

i too was in the phorum but i have become a religious brother since 2011.. so no more phorums for me! i am translating a work from spanish to english and it has quotes from st thomas aquinas... and so i am very grateful for your links!
