The Passions of Christ's Soul in the Theology of St. Thomas Aquinas

Paperback
In the reams of scholarship on Thomas Aquinas, little attention has been paid to his study of Christ's human affectivity. Paul Gondreau's book fills that void in Thomistic scholarship, tracing the sources of Aquinas' doctrine on Christ's passions, the integral nature of that doctrine to his overall Christology, and the medieval context in which he developed his theology. This groundbreaking volume also addresses how Aquinas treats specific examples of the passions of Christ, including pain, sorrow, fear, wonder, and anger. The Passions of Christ's Soul in the Theology of St. Thomas Aquinas will be an invaluable resource for theology students and scholars.
