Thomas Aquinas on Song of Songs

Cerf has just published a book by Serge-Thomas Bonino O.P., Saint Thomas d’Aquin, lecteur du Cantique des Cantiques. This work concerns the way in which St. Thomas drew from Song of Songs, using this text in his theology to describe Christ, Virgin Mary, Church  or to present the relations of love between the soul and God.

Fr. Serge-Thomas Bonino O.P. is a general secretary of the International Theological Commission, a president of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas and a dean of the Faculty of Philosophy of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas “Angelicum”. He authored, among others, such books as Les anges et les démons. Quatorze leçons de théologie (Parole et Silence 2007) and Dieu, Celui qui est (De Deo ut uno) (Parole et Silence 2016). A number of his short lectures on St. Thomas and his Summa may be found at the YouTube channel of the Aquinas Project.
