Holy who organized the Inquisition (ideology)[edit]

Exists dispute.

Refs were approved (long time ago) : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Aquinas#Treatment_of_heretics :

"Aquinas's position on heresy and heretics provided the doctrinal basis of the Inquisition. For Jews and Muslims, Aquinas argues for toleration, not only of their persons but also of their public rites.[134]" (and Summa)

Founder of the "doctrinal basis of the Inquisition" - very & very important thing in his biography. Such important information must be & on top - in some other form. See history. Port number 10 (talk) 20:27, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

You quote from our article "Aquinas's position on heresy and heretics provided the doctrinal basis of the Inquisition". But that sentence has no supporting ref. If I look at http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/aquinas/ it doesn't even mention the inquisition William M. Connolley (talk) 20:47, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
  • If I am wrong, you can delete any mentions of the Inquisition in the article (when Thomas has relation). I will not be against. This text can be deleted, of course and including: "Aquinas's position on heresy and heretics provided the doctrinal basis of the Inquisition." Port number 10 (talk) 01:12, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
  • William M. Connolley, why did you left this instead removal ("doctrinal basis of the Inquisition")? Port number 10 (talk) 13:08, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Because I missed it. But you've removed it, so that's OK William M. Connolley (talk) 13:11, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Lead needs to be changed back to its original form[edit]

From

Tommaso d'Aquino, OP (1225 – 7 March 1274), also known as Saint Thomas Aquinas (/əˈkwaɪnəs/), is a Doctor of the Church.

back to

Tommaso d'Aquino, OP (1225 – 7 March 1274), also known as Saint Thomas Aquinas (/əˈkwaɪnəs/), was an Italian Dominican friar and Catholic priest who was an immensely influential philosopher, theologian and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism, within which he is also known as the "Doctor Angelicus" and "Doctor Communis".

What he actually was and *did* takes precedence over a single title he was granted two centuries after his death. And come on---introducing a dead man in the present tense? How has this lasted so long? 72.200.151.15 (talk) 13:12, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 June 2016[edit]

In the 'Philosophy' section of this entry, the last two sentences regarding Thomas's use of Pseudo-Dionysius are untrue. The sources cited are not reputable, nor are they even tangentially associated with any mainstream Catholic scholarship. No authentic reading of Thomas, whether Protestant or Catholic, can conclude that Thomas was heavily influenced by "concoctions" of Pseudo-Dionysius. Factually speaking, even if Thomas was heavily influenced by the hierarchical theology of Pseudo-Dionysius, very few if any scholars maintain that Pseudo-Dionysius was more influential in his thinking than Aristotle.

Furthermore, the source Peter Paul Fuchs is actually a pen name for an anti-Catholic pseudo-scholar. He dropped out of seminary years ago and uses that credential as a platform to write reviews contrary to the conclusions of authentic scholarship. 73.24.31.9 (talk) 20:48, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
