Group Description

Thomists

Thomism is the name given to the system which follows the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas in philosophical and theological questions. The purpose of this group is the study and discussion of the works of the eminent Thomists and Neo-Thomists (neothomism), such as Fr. Reginald Gerrigou-Lagrange, Etienne Gilson and Jacques Maritain (Names will be added to this list as they are suggested) who attempted to transmit Aquinas' works for modern consumption. To this end our discussions will focus primarily on the works of these disciples rather than the works of the Master himself unless they relate to the work in question. See our Links for groups dedicated to directly discussing the works of St Thomas.

" Accordingly, just as it was said to the Egyptians of old in time of famine: "Go to Joseph," so that they should receive a supply of corn from him to nourish their bodies, so We now say to all such as are desirous of the truth: "Go to Thomas," and ask him to give you from his ample store the food of substantial doctrine wherewith to nourish your souls unto eternal life. Evidence that such food is ready to hand and accessible to all men was given on oath at the hearing of the case for the canonization of Thomas himself, in the following words: "Innumerable secular and religious masters flourished under the lucid and limpid teaching of this Doctor, because his method was concise, clear and easily followed . . . even laymen and persons of little instruction are eager to possess his writings.""
(Pope Pius XI, encyclical Studiorum Ducem, 1923)
