Speaking of St. Thomas and the Summa


The Christian Classics Ethereal Library has the Summa as a pdf file. I downloaded it. The text is 4081 pages. The table of contents is 150 pages!

Kant's Critique of Pure Reason is about 700 pages. The Summa is as big as six Critiques! It isn't even the totality of Thomas' work.

Think about this as well: Master Thomas only lived to age 49. When did he sleep?
