About This Guide

St. Stomas Aquinas

Depiction of St. Thomas Aquinas from The Demidoff Altarpiece by Carlo Crivelli (1476).

The emphasis in this guide is on Christian theology, and more specifically on Catholic theology, although a number of the works cited provide an ecumenical perspective.  The guide is meant to help identify materials for basic and advanced research in theology.
