PITHY QUOTE FROM Aquinas: Collected Works

Open quotes
Now among the elements the top rank is held by fire, which has the greatest light, while the lowest in rank is held by earth which has a minimum of light. Consequently, the moon, which is the lowest of the heavenly bodies, is proportionate to earth and is in some sense similar to it in nature — for which reason it cannot be totally lit up by the sun.

The Collected Works of St. Thomas Aquinas contains almost every work of St. Thomas which has been translated into English (over fifty texts). A number of previously unpublished translations appear for the first time in the database, including Jean Oesterle's translation On Evil; Ralph McInerny's translation On the Uniqueness of the Intellect Against the Averroists; Father Fabian Larcher and Father Pierre Conway's translations of Aquinas's commentaries on Aristotle's De Caelo et Mundo, De Generatione et Corruptione, and De Meteorologicorum; as well as a number of previously unpublished translations of Opuscula. Ralph McInerny, Michael P. Grace Professor of Medieval Studies at the University of Notre Dame, has written an introduction for the database.

Many texts are now out of print and cannot be purchased elsewhere. The database is over 67,000,000 characters in size, and contains over 10,000,000 words.
