St. Thomas’s commentaries on the Gospels of Matthew and John are among the most beautiful works of this deep-thinking Doctor of the Church. Dating from the years 1270-72, these commentaries were written as St. Thomas was also composing the third part of the Summa Theologiae and his commentaries on the works of Aristotle. In these volumes, St. Thomas explores the gospels of Matthew and John verse by verse. He brings the both insight of the Fathers of the Church and the philosophy of Aristotle to enlighten his commentary, making a rich theological and philosophical reading of the gospels of Matthew and John.
