The Aesthetics of Thomas Aquinas

The Aesthetics of Thomas Aquinas

(1984)
A non fiction book by

 
Library Journal
St. Thomas Aquinas is best known as one of the foremost theologians of the Catholic Church. Until recently, however, little attention was paid to his aesthetics, despite its connections with his theology and ethics. In this translation of a revised edition of a work first published in 1956, Italian semiotician Eco examines Aquinas's aesthetics in light not only of his other writings but of other medieval theories of beauty. Eco shows how Aquinas's three conditions of beautyintegrity, proportion, and clarityappear in his reflections on such subjects as music, the Scriptures, and God. Though intended for, and best read by, scholars familiar with medieval philosophy and aesthetics, this intriguing work will also interest those who love the beauty of the spiritual.
