Opuscula

Opuscula is Latin for little works, which is what these volumes contain, a collection of the little works of St. Thomas. Grouped together because they are shorter than the rest of St. Thomas’s work, these works are not little in the sense that they are less profound. They are the miscellaneous works that show St. Thomas’s boundless desire to know as well as his keen sense of humor and interest in many different topics of his day. The Opuscula contains a wide variety of genres, including some of St. Thomas’s famous responses to his colleagues, letters, liturgical pieces and the Compendium Theologiae written for brother Reginald.

The Opuscula are appropriate for the modern reader in their brevity and range of subject matter.
