Book Description

This new work clarifies Aquinas’ concept of natural law through his biblical commentaries, and explores its applications to U.S. constitutional law.

  • The first time the use of Aquinas on the U.S. Supreme Court has been explored in depth, and its applications tested through a rigorous reading of the biblical commentaries
  • Shows how key judgments in the Supreme Court have rested on medieval natural law, and applies critical gender theory to discuss problems with these applications
  • Offers new research data to give a different picture of Aquinas and natural law, and a fresh take on Aquinas’ biblical commentaries
  • New research based on passages in the biblical commentaries never before available in English

Review

In this fascinating new book, Eugene Rogers shows, in anunprecedented way, how Aquinas thinks that the law of nature isdiscerned differently according to specific historical position andcultural belonging. A singularly crucial contribution to thedeveloping new debate about law andreligion. John Milbank, University ofNottingham

In this well documented and lucidly argued book wediscover that what might seem purely arcane medieval scholarshipcuts decisively into matters of currently great humanconcern. Fergus Kerr, University ofEdinburgh

Rogers′s detailed and erudite argument constitutes aradical challenge to the new natural lawtheory .  Rooted deeply in Aquinas′s biblicalcommentaries, his book turns St. Thomas against those who would usehim to defend a socially conservative agenda in American law.Rogers simply up–ends the culture wars.  Anyone interested inthe relationship of religion, morality, and American law shouldread this book. M Cathleen Kaveny, University ofNotre Dame
