The Trinitarian Christology of St Thomas Aquinas

At the end of last century a French Dominican, great exponent of contemporary Thomism published a book entitled Synthèse dogmatique with the subtitle “De la Trinité à la Trinité”. The choice of both was not accidental, because he intentionally wanted to point out a key idea in the thinking of Thomas Aquinas: theology is nothing but thinking about the mystery of God revealed and how all things come from him and tend to him. The book of Dominic Legge that we are commenting on now participates in the same fundamental conviction and tries, successfully, to show how the Christology of Saint Thomas is fully included in this conceptual framework: it is only intelligible if it is viewed from the mystery of the Trinity.
