Postscript on St Thomas and the Spirit of Man

Thank you to all those who chipped in with comments on Tuesday’s article on the subject. All very helpful and interesting.

I wanted to pass on a comment that was made in a private group that discussed this question in te wake of that posting; it is quite long so I thought I would add it as a separate post. This came to me as a jpeg via text, and I don’t have access to the original, so I am sharing in jpeg format here. I haven’t credited the writer of the comment because it came to me via someone other than the writer; if the person who wrote this sees this post, and would like to identify himself, I will be happy to credit you; otherwise, thank you for your insights!

I had never heard of Rosmini before, but this does sound worthy of investigation to me! I found this book of his on Amazon, which may be a starting point for any who are curious.

The Triumph of St Thomas Aquinas, by Andrea di Buonaiuto di Firenze, 1366-7, in the Spanish Chapel of the Dominican church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence.
