Was Saint Thomas Aquinas ever excommunicated?


I overhead someone say Thomas Aquinas was excommicated during his lifetime. Is this true? What were the circumstances?


Dear BB,

Here’s another good reason to not believe everything you hear. No, Saint Thomas was never excommunicated.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
