Catena Aurea
St. Thomas Aquinas

Catena Aurea – Commentary on the Four Gospels

Freshly re-typeset. This is the first time in more than 150 years that the English translation of the Catena Aurea has been entirely re-typeset, meaning that the text is crisp, clear and easy to read, unlike many facsimile editions. It accurately reproduces the original text and incorporates all errors noted in the original volumes' errata sheets.

Beautiful leather-bound cover with two-colour blocking.
Gilded page edges
Two ribbons
Fine Marbled endpapers

St. Thomas Aquinas' Catena Aurea is a masterpiece anthology of Patristic commentary on the Gospels – it includes the work of over eighty Church Fathers.
St. Thomas Aquinas’ work demonstrates intimate acquaintance with the Church Fathers and is an excellent complement to the more recent attempts to understand the inner meaning of the Sacred Scriptures. For each of the four Gospel writers, the Catena Aurea starts by indicating the verses to be analyzed, then phrase-by-phrase, provides the early Fathers’ insights into the passage.

The unchanging rule of the Church is that “no one [is] to interpret the Sacred Scripture… contrary to the unanimous consent of the Fathers” (Vatican I). Just as in our own day there has been renewed interest in the Church Fathers, so in the 13th century, when the Catena Aurea was compiled, the western church was undergoing a similar revival of interest in the ancient patristic authors – and the works of many Eastern Fathers were translated from Greek to Latin for the first time. During this period there was increasing hunger for the true and authentic interpretation of Scripture, which the Church Fathers hold the key to.

St. Thomas Aquinas was commissioned to write the Catena Aurea by Pope Urban IV, in order that an orthodox Patristic commentary on the Gospels was readily available to all readers. John Henry Newman, who is widely expected to be canonized next year, was responsible for its translation into English in 1841. Cardinal Newman hoped that the Catena would become a source of catechesis within the family and the Church. Cardinal Newman’s edition of the Catena Aurea is one of the jewels of the 19th century Catholic Restoration, making the scholarship of the Fathers available to a wider audience. As with many 19th century texts it employs a sober, dignified style of English, which is eminently suitable to the unsurpassable mysteries of the Catholic Faith.

The Catena Aurea, compiled by one of the Catholic Church’s greatest minds, is of immeasurable use to priests writing homilies, lay people engaged in private or family study or of the Gospels and religious instructors will find it an invaluable help in preparing lessons. It is the perfect companion to study the Scriptures in detail and receive the wisdom of St. Thomas on particular passages.

Consider the Catena Aurea as a discussion of the Gospels among the supreme theologians of the Church. Their exegesis is astonishing! A worthy recommendation for the serious student of the Bible is a copy of the only work that Aquinas was known to carry around with him.
About the author:

Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225 in Sicily. He joined the Benedictine abbey of Montecassino at the age of five to begin his studies. At the age of sixteen, he was transferred to the University of Naples, where he became familiar with the revival of Aristotle and the Order of the Dominicans. Aquinas continued to study in Cologne in 1244 and Paris in 1245. Returning to Cologne, he became a lecturer in 1248. As a theologian of great renown, he travelled throughout Europe, and when not lecturing or teaching, Aquinas participated in public life and was an advisor to kings and popes.

Thomas Aquinas died on March 7, 1274, and fifty years after his death, Pope John XXII proclaimed Thomas Aquinas a saint. In 1879, Pope Leo XII made Thomas Aquinas the patron saint of education.

At long last, available again And possible only with the gracious permission of Cardinal John J. O'Connor of New York A facsimile reproduction of the 1962 altar Missal for priests -- the most recent Vatican-approved text "In a discussion with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger recently, I asked His Eminence for his assessment of the future of the 1962 Missal as an approved liturgical book. He assured me that it was completely secure. For this reason, and because of the publishing event you see here, it is certain that the use of the 1962 Missale Romanum will increase dramatically in years to come. The remarkable increase in young priests ordained with the Pope's approval to use this Missal gives great hope by itself. But the 1962 Missale Romanum, until now, was available to most of them only rarely, from used book dealers. The availability of a fresh supply of 1962 altar Missals changes the landscape utterly." ▄Michael Davies * Smyth-sewn binding * Hand-affixed tabbed pages for the Canon in matching Cabra leather * Gold-gilded pages all round * Beautiful Belgian line art adorns the text * Weighs 5 lbs., 11 oz. * Two-color pages throughout * Quality Finch vanilla paper, with the Ordinary of the Mass in extra-thick 70-lb. stock * For maximum protection, shrink-wrapped and custom packaged as they come off the press * Rich red leather covers, Cabra bonded -- the sturdiest, imported from Germany "I invite the bishops also, fraternally, to understand and to have a renewed pastoral attention for the faithful attached to the old rite...." ▄Pope John Paul II, October 26, 1998
