St. Thomas Aquinas' biblical commentaries on five Pauline letters now online

The Aquinas Center for Theological Renewal of Ave María University has made available the following unpublished translations, done years ago by Fr. Fabian Larcher, of St. Thomas Aquinas's biblical commentaries on Hebrews, Colossians, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, and Ephesians. Until a couple years ago, these unpublished translations - good but left unpublished because they are not critical editions (i.e. with footnotes, using the most critically up-to-date Latin text etc.) - existed only in typescripts kept in a box by Fr. Pierre Conway OP of the Dominican House in Washington D.C. He gave the typescripts to the Aquinas Center on the promise that they would be converted into digital format and worked toward publication. Enjoy them!
