Read St. Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica in 1 year!


Let’s be honest, if you clicked through to this blog, you probably know what the Summa Theologica is, and if you know what the Summa Theologica is, you’re awesome.

And a nerd.

An awesome nerd.

But just in case, the Summa Theologica (often just called the Summa) is the best-known work of  St. Thomas Aquinas (whose feast it is today!).

It synthesizes faith and reason, which, as St. John Paul II wrote in his 1998 encyclical Fides et Ratio, “are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth.”

In celebration of the day, En Route Books and Media is bringing you for free the opportunity to read the entire Summa Theologica in only one year.

Divided into 365 parts by a graduate student of Holy Apostles College and Seminary, TJ Burdick, the Summa is more accessible now than ever!

To sign up, simply go here and register for free.

You’ll receive a selection of the Summa every day between now and St. Thomas’s next feast day. Imagine meeting him again this time next year having read for yourself his masterpiece!

  1. Hi Matt, have really been enjoying the podcast, and just listened to your chat with Fr. Chris. Your comment about “intellectual loneliness” really hit home, and I was wondering if an episode about lay Dominicans might be useful for other Aquinas lovers who feel the same way. I’m still very early in my formation as one, but it’s been an incredible way of drawing closer to God through prayer and study with a group of like-minded people.

    Thanks, and keep up the great work!
