SUMMA THEOLOGICA 5 VOLUME HARDCOVER EDITION
Written by St. Thomas Aquinas from 1265 until his death in 1274, this is his most famous work and is certainly the greatest, most ambitious, most rational book of theology ever written. It was intended as a manual for beginners as a compilation of all of the main theological teachings of that time. The Summa's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God, God's creation, Man, Man's purpose, Christ, the Sacraments, and back to God. It consists of 38 tracts, 631 questions, about 3000 articles, 10,000 objections and their answers. Hardcover. Five volumes totaling 3,022 pages.
