Literal Exposition on Job: A Scriptural Commentary Concerning Providence

Aquinas, Thomas (Trans. by Anthony Damico)


For Thomas Aquinas (1224–1274), the Book of Job is the authoritative teaching concerning divine providence. In his Literal Exposition on Job, Aquinas offers a line-by-line commentary on the scriptural text. He analyzes the text not only by way of cross-references within the Book of Job and to other parts of Scripture, but also by appeal to the writings of Aristotle, the Church Fathers, and other Christian Aristotelians. Anthony Damico’s translation is more literal than literary, preferring to render the Latin words wherever possible by their obvious English derivatives. Martin Yaffe provides an extensive interpretive essay, bibliography, and indexes of citations.
