 Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) was an Italian theologist and philosopher. He was interested in questions about the nature of reality, and of human behaviour, and worked towards reconciling Ancient Greek philosophy, especially that of Aristotle, with Christianity. He produced a commentary of Aristotle's works, as well as many philosophical texts of his own, including Summa contra gentiles and Summa theologiae, his two most famous texts.
