Entry 0145: Anchorage presentation on the “Angelic Doctor” Saint Thomas Aquinas

On 8 October 2010, the Catholic Anchor Online, the Newspaper of the Archdiocese of Anchorage, reported the following:

Saint Thomas Aquinas is the famous 13th century Dominican philosopher, theologian and “Angelic Doctor” of the Catholic Church. According to Pope Benedict XVI, St. Thomas Aquinas’s work has had “fundamental importance” in philosophy, theology, as well as for history and culture.

Among other achievements, explained the Pope in June, “Thomas Aquinas showed that a natural harmony exists between Christian faith and reason… He created a new synthesis which formed the culture of the centuries to come.”
