Latin designation for the Summary of Theology or comprehensive system
of theology written by the most important Christian thinker of the High Middle
Ages, Thomas Aquinas (1225-74). In this
multi-volume work Aquinas synthesized Roman Catholic beliefs inherited from the
Bible and Church Tradition with insights from the Greek philosophers,
especially Aristotle (384-322 BCE).
