From the popular Vision Book Series of saint biographies by Ignatius Press. The story of St. Thomas Aquinas is one full of moving and dramatic scenes: the flaming destruction of Monte Cassino Abbey, the reception into the Dominican order of the quiet, determined young Thomas, the breath-taking escape from the donjon tower, and the striking instances of the saint's eloquence and brillance.
Children from the age of 9 to 15 will enjoy the exciting story of the man who wrote the masterful Summa Theologica, and who was the advisor to popes yet refused ecclesiastical honor-- Thomas Aquinas, the simple friar who shook the medieval worlld with his intellect.
