‘Catena Aurea -Commentary on the Four Gospels Collected out of the Works of the Fathers by St. Thomas Aquinas.’
St. Thomas Aquinas’s commentary on the Gospels is here, (as PDF page-image files) complete in 8 volumes. This edition was published in English between 1842 and 1845. Aquinas’s monumentally important work incorporates excerpts from approximately 80 Greek and Latin Church Fathers and other commentators, and contains fragments of some writings that are now otherwise lost. Gospel commentaries of this kind were popular during the first millennium, and Aquinas would have drawn on earlier works to compile this masterpiece, known as the ‘Catena Aurea’ (Golden Chain).
