Biografische Daten von Thomas von Aquin


Hermaphrodit, 15. Jht.

Thomas von Aquin [Doctor Universalis] [BW 570, Werk 730/460] (1225-1274) italienischer katholischer Heiliger, Dominikaner-Priester, Theologe der scholastischen Tradition, bedeutender Philosoph, Kirchenlehrer

 

Thomas von Aquin (auch Thomas Aquinas oder Tommaso d'Aquino) (*um 1225 auf Schloss Roccasecca bei Aquino in Italien; † 7. März 1274 in Fossanova) gilt als einer der wirkmächtigsten Philosophen und Theologen der Geschichte. Der Italiener war ein Hauptvertreter der Philosophie des hohen Mittelalters, der Scholastik. Er war dominikanischer Mönch und einer der bedeutendsten katholischen Theologen und Kirchenlehrer. Von der römisch-katholischen Kirche wird er als Heiliger verehrt.

 

Gegen Ende seines Lebens hatte er mehrere mystische Erlebnisse, die ihn seine Vergangenheit als Scholastiker anzweifeln ließen.

 

Inspiriert wurde er durch: Aristoteles [BW 498] (384-322 v. Chr.), St. Augustinus von Hippo Regius [BW 550, Werk 503] (354-430), Pseudo-Dionysius Aeropagita [Pseudodionysius] [BW 490] (6. Jht.), Johannes Scotus Eriugena (810-877).

 

Er hinterließ ein sehr umfangreiches Werk, das im Neuthomismus und der Neuscholastik bis in die heutige Zeit nachwirkt. Zu seinen wichtigsten Werke zählen Summa Theologica [BW 730] (1225-1274) und De Anima.

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • Some people need to learn how to think more.  Others need to learn how to stop thinking! It is because of devotion that the true significance of the learning is revealed. Reason in and of itself does not bring comprehension. You have to bring devotion and faith to it. Then the meaning of it – other than intellectual meaning – you become aware of it. So the perfect combination is reason plus faith. That was the teaching of Saint Thomas Aquinas [LoC 460]; he pointed out the relationship is between faith and reason. Meaning is revealed by faith. Faith reveals the true significance of the meaning. Sedona Satsang Q&A, Creative Life Center, 2 CD set, 13. September 2006

 

  • Thomas of Aquinus said, Faith needs to be reinforced by reason and that reason is reinforced by faith. [...] Summa Theologica [LoC 730] (1225-1274) synthesizes reason and faith. You have to reinforce reason by faith otherwise you end up with destruction. Prescott Seminar Spirituality: Reason and Faith, DVD 1 of 3, minute 33:56, 26. January 2008
