Thomas of Aquinas

was an Italian theologian, philosopher and dominican friar. He is renowned for being one of the most influential members of medieval scholasticism and the one who spread the thoughts of Aristotle throughout Europe. The goal of his scientific approach was to connect Aristotelian philosophy with Cristian thoughts. This way he wanted to proof that there is no contradiction between religious ideas and critical reasoning. He understood knowledge and faith as two ways of the same insight.
