This book offers a revisionary account of key epistemological concepts and doctrines of St Thomas Aquinas, particularly his concept of scientia (science), and proposes an interpretation of the purpose and composition of Aquinas's most mature and influential work, the Summa theologiae, which presents the scientia of sacred doctrine, i.e. Christian theology. Contrary to the standard interpretation of it as a work for neophytes in theology, Jenkins argues that it is in fact a pedagogical work intended as the culmination of philosophical and theological studies of very gifted students. Jenkins considers our knowledge of the principles of a science. He argues that rational assent to the principles of sacred doctrine, the articles of faith, is due to the influence of grace on one's cognitive powers, because of which one is able immediately to apprehend these propositions as divinely revealed. His study will be of interest to readers in philosophy, theology and medieval studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a very good book, with a very tight focus, and much evidence of a profound knowledge both of Aquinas' major texts and the world from which they emerge.' Reviews in Religion and Theology
"...the whole of this challenging book is cogently argued, in dialogue with major scholars, and it's largely convincing. A genuine contribution to Aquinas scholarship." Denis R. Janz, Religious Studies Review
"While this book deals with complex and abtruse issues, it focuses on pivotal ones and is well organized and clear. Thus, although it will interest mainly graduate and postgraduate readers, advanced undergraduates may delve into it with profit. Recommended for larger theology collections." Choice
"...an important philosophical treatment of the central concept in most ancient and medieval theories of knowledge." Charles Bolyard, Philosophy in Review
"In this impressive first book, John Jenkins...sheds considerable light on Aquina's ambition and practice in the Summa theologiae through the close examination of certain epistemological terms..." Joseph Wawrykow, Journal of Religion
