‘The contributors to this second volume of Maynooth Aquinas Lectures are a combination of established experts and younger scholars. The book is dedicated to the memory of the late James McEvoy, former professor at Louvain, Belfast and Maynooth … [in a review] I can only indicate samples of the richness of the material contained in the collection … The centrepiece of this collection of essays, Denys Turner’s profound, sympathetic, and beautifully expressed account of “Thomas the Teacher”, addresses a key feature of the book’s title … This is a splendid and wide-ranging collection of essays about Thomas that will be of interest not only to Thomistic scholars but to anyone seeking to sample the nature of his thought, its context, and its contemporary relevance’, Patrick Masterson, The Thomist (April 2014).

‘Medievalists will find much to interest them in this volume … Several contributors bring Aquinas’s ideas into dialogue with those of our own time … Its contributors are as enthusiastic about their subject as the Apostles at Pentecost', Conor McDonough, The Furrow (January 2013).
