  2. Week 1: INTRODUCTION (I): Aquinas's Theology. 10 items
    Why read Aquinas today? How did Aquinas write so much in so little time? What are we to make of Aquinas’ life through the haze of hagiography? How important is Aquinas’ Dominican identity? Was Aquinas just a collator and synthesizer of theological material? How original was Aquinas? Is it really Aquinas or Augustine, Aristotle or Plato? Is it all just like straw, anyway? Why does Aquinas keep coming back from the dead? What can we make of Thomism(s)? What can we make of Anti-Thomism(s)?
    1. Introduction to Aquinas' Works, Biography and Reception 10 items
      1. Primary Texts 6 items
        NB. These are very short excerpts (each of 1-5 pp.) of Aquinas' writings from a variety of genre (handout to be provided).
        1. The Letter of Thomas Aquinas to Brother John "De modo studendi"

If Christ was bound by obedience to the His Father’s Will, how could he have been perfectly free?
