Discovering Aquinas : an introduction to his life, work, and influence by Aidan Nichols( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Aquinas is one the great figures of the Christian church, and his ideas continue to have a powerful effect on theologians and contemporary thinkers from very different backgrounds and traditions. In Discovering Aquinas Aidan Nichols offers a lively and authoritative introduction to the life, thought, and ongoing influence of this singular churchman. After a lengthy period of declining interest in Aquinas, we are now witnessing a Thomistic renaissance, including a renewed appreciation for the way his work brings together philosophy, theology, spirituality, revelation, and ethics. After first introducing the compelling facts of Aquinas's life in relation to his own time, Nichols explores the major facets of Aquinas's thought, showing not only its historical importance but also why so many today now see it as a vital partner in current debates about the future of Christianity

Redeeming beauty : soundings in sacral aesthetics by Aidan Nichols( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Redeeming Beauty explores the richness of orthodox Christian tradition, both Western and Eastern, in matters of 'sacral aesthetics' - a term used to denote the foundations, production and experience of religiously relevant beauty. Aidan Nichols investigates five principal themes: the foundation of beauty in the natural order through divine creative action; explicitly 'evangelical' beauty as a quality of biblical revelation and notably at its climax in Christ; the legitimacy of making and venerating artworks; qualities of the self in relation to objective presentation of the religiously beautif

The poet as believer : a theological study of Paul Claudel by Aidan Nichols( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive study of the theological significance of Paul Claudel, a poet frequently cited by literary-minded theologians in Europe and theologically-minded poets (such as von Balthasar, de Lubac and Eliot). His writing combines cosmology and history, Bible and metaphysics, liturgy and the drama of human personality. His work, which continues to arouse discussion in France, was acclaimed in his lifetime as the 'summa poetica' of a new Dante. Aidan Nichols' study demonstrates how Claudel's oeuvre, which is not only poetry but theatre and prose including biblical commentaries, constitutes a rich resource for constructive doctrine, liturgical preaching, and theological reflection. As the comparable example of Geoffrey Hill, Professor of Poetry at Oxford suggests, Aidan Nichols illuminates how Claudel's synthesis of many dimensions remains an important way of practising poetry in the Christian tradition today

The Latin clerk : the life, work, and travels of Adrian Fortescue by Aidan Nichols( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Adrian Fortescue presents an insightful look at a man, now perceived as an icon of Catholic traditionalism, facing a crisis of conscience over his affiliation with Liberal Catholicism and objections towards the intellectual conservatism of the papacy. The Latin Clerk thus reveals an interesting discord in Edwardian culture between theological doctrine and secular developments, and also reflects frequent tensions existing within the Roman Catholic Church of today, making the inner conflics of Fortescue pertinent to modern society. Not only will this book be of interest to hist
Scribe of the Kingdom, 1 Essays on Theology and Culture by Aidan Nichols( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aidan Nichols opens his major two-colume study of theology and culture with a powerful statement of the 'intelligent conservatism' which he sees, not as one way of being Catholic among others, but as the very teaching of Jesus Christ. The 'intelligent conservative' is, indeed, the 'scribe of the Kingdom' described in our Lord's parable; 'Every scribe who has bene trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a housekeeper who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old'. (Mt 13:52.) Fr Nichols distinguishes three elements in thsi approach. First, it combines openned to the new with fide
