Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) is arguably the greatest thinker of the Middle Ages, and a massive figure in the history of philosophy, and in the history of the Catholic church. Robert Dyson teaches politics at the University of Durham, and has previously edited and translated an acclaimed rendition of The City of God by Augustine for the Cambridge Texts series.
