Aquinas at Prayer

Full Product Description

Aquinas is known largely as an austere dogmatic thinker. But he is also a very great contemplative - a Master of the Spiritual Life. The "Unread Vision" draws attention to important aspects of Aquinas' life and work which have been all too often overlooked or forgotten. Today Aquinas is almost exclusively regarded as an outstanding scholastic philosopher and theologian. But what is little known is that Aquinas was, first and last, a teacher of the Bible - a Master of the Sacred Page. Moreover there is a distinctly mystical character to his theology. And, as a writer, he was not only a poet but, arguably, the greatest Latin poet of the Middle Ages. The primary focus of this most engaging new book is to explore the question of Aquinas' teaching on prayer and to reflect also his own actual practice of prayer. The book is strengthened by quotations from Aquinas in fresh translations.

Aquinas at Prayer by Paul Murray was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in August 2013. The ISBN for Aquinas at Prayer is 9781441107558.
