Catena Aurea

Encompassing all four Gospels, St. Thomas Aquinas’ Catena Aurea may be the most unique of his works. Unites the teachings of both early Latin and Eastern Church Fathers, Aquinas creates an illuminative reading of the story of Christ complete with quotations from early Christian thinkers.

Impeccable in his source attribution, which was uncommon for his time, Aquinas’ synthesis in this work points to the harmony of Scripture and Tradition as the voices of Church Fathers, East and West, shine alongside biblical text.

The Catena Aurea is a unique work of scriptural commentary, which affords the reader a look into the deep meaning of the Gospels as understood throughout early Church history.
