I really enjoyed the Catholic Answers Radio programme of 30 April: The Perennial Impact of Thomas Aquinas
with guest Fr Michael Sweeney OP.
During the programme Fr Michael was asked a question about differing translations of The Summa and fr said that the translation which most people have, done by a group of Dominican students, is not the best. The day before I had read a book review from the Homiletic and Pastoral Review
by Fr Kenneth Baker SJ editor emeritus of HPR which dealt with a new translation of the Summa:
TREATISE ON HUMAN NATURE: The Complete Text (Summa Theologiae I, Questions 75-102). By St. Thomas Aquinas; translated by Alfred J. Freddoso (St. Augustine’s Press, South Bend, IN 47780, 2011), 351 pp. PB $20.00.
The Treatise on Law
(Prima Secundae, Questions 90-108) was the first part of this new translation to appear in print. The goal is to have the whole Summa available in this new English translation by 2013.
