Memorial

Thomas was born about the year 1225 into the family of the Count of Aquino. He first studied at the monastery of Monte Cassino and later at the University of Naples. Afterwards he joined the Friars Preachers and completed his studies at Paris and Cologne, his instructor being Saint Albert the Great. Becoming himself a teacher, he wrote many learned volumes and was especially renowned for his philosophical and theological studies. St Thomas died near Terracina on 7th March 1274, but his memory is honoured on 28th January, the day his body was transferred to Toulouse in 1369.
