It is the great merit of this excellent book by Cessario and Cuddy to highlight the enduring fecundity of the Thomist Tradition

“The seed sown by St. Thomas Aquinas in the thirteenth century has not ceased to bear fruit since then. It is the great merit of this excellent book by Cessario and Cuddy to highlight the enduring fecundity of the Thomist Tradition through the ages. If it is true that Thomas must be read at first in the light of his sources and context, then taking into account the living tradition which he engendered forms part of an integral and vibrant approach to Thomism.” 

Serge-Thomas Bonino, O.P. | General Secretary of the International Theological Commission

This book is what one wants to read before giving it to students.

“How long have we waited for an erudite and plain-spoken book on St. Thomas and the Thomists—those disciples of the Angelic Doctor who have proved themselves over seven centuries to be both querulous and delightfully agile in defending the unity of sacred doctrine? This book is what one wants to read before giving it to students.”   

Russell Hittinger | University of Tulsa

“This winsomely written brief introduction to Thomas Aquinas and the Thomist Tradition is simply the best of its kind presently available—accurate, lucid, informative, intriguing, inviting—and, indeed, inspiring. Romanus Cessario and Cajetan Cuddy have done an inestimable service for a new generation of students who are seeking a reliable first guide into the unfathomable depths and riches of Thomas Aquinas's thought and its impact over the centuries. Tolle lege, take and read!”
