Modernity and political thought (Unnumbered)
"In this book, Shadia B. Drury overturns the long-standing reputation of Thomas Aquinas as the most rational exponent of the Christian faith. She reveals that Aquinas was one of the most zealous Dominicans (Domini Canes) or Hounds of the Lord. The book contains criticisms of Aquinas's reconciliation of faith and reason, his defense of papal supremacy, his justification of the Inquisition, his insistence on the persecution of Jews, and his veneration of celibacy."--BOOK JACKET.
