Rewritten Theology: Aquinas after His Readers / Edition 1

Responding to the recent upsurge of interest in Thomas Aquinas,this book goes straight to the heart of the contemporary debatesabout Thomism.

  • Focuses on the concept of authority, both in terms ofAquinas’s own attitude to authority, and how the Churchauthorities have used Aquinas’s texts.
  • Engages with appropriations of Aquinas’s work by a rangeof theologians, from liberal Catholics to the creators of radicalorthodoxy.
  • Argues for future readings of Aquinas which are substantiallydifferent from those which have gone before.
