- Dominican (q.v.) theologian (1224-1274). Among his voluminous works is the Summa theologica, which systematically expounds theology using the philosophical thinking of Aristotle (q.v.). This became the foundation of western scholasticism (q.v.), which influenced such Byzantine writers as Demetrios Kydones, Prohoros Kydones, and Gennadios II Scholarios (qq.v.). Aquinas himself was influenced by the eastern theologian John of Damascus (q.v.).
