Overview

Thomas Aquinas (1224/5-1274) was one of the greatest of the medieval philosophers. His Summa Theologiae is his most important contribution to Christian theology and one of the main sources for his philosophy. This volume offers most of the Summa's first twenty-six questions, on the existence and nature of God, in a new version of the 1960 Blackfriars translation extensively revised by Brian Davies. It also includes an introduction by Brian Leftow which looks at the questions in their philosophical and historical context. The result is an accessible and up-to-date edition of Aquinas' thought in this area, which has continuing relevance for both the philosophy of religion and Christian theology.
