This great verse-by-verse commentary on the Gospels drawn from the writings of the Church Fathers was commissioned by Pope Urban IV and translated under the direction of the Ven. John Henry Newman in 1841.
This edition includes a specially commissioned introduction by Fr. Aidan Nichols, O.P. It also contains, for the first time in English, St. Thomas's own substantial dedicatory letter to Pope Urban IV, in which he describes how the commentary was composed.
