Discover the Catena Aurea (The Golden Chain) Reprint, an exquisite hardcover set that brings you the original English edition from 2009. With marking ribbons included in each volume, this elegant collection allows you to explore the insightful works of St. Thomas Aquinas and over 80 Early Church Fathers.
In this comprehensive exegesis, St. Thomas Aquinas focuses on the Gospel books that recount the life of Jesus Christ. The English translation, edited by the renowned JOHN HENRY NEWMAN (1801-1890), adds an exceptional touch to the original Latin text. Newman's expertise, combined with years of meticulous work, ensures the accuracy and enduring value of this edition.
Originally published as an 8-volume set, our reprint has been thoughtfully bound into 4 volumes, offering an economical sale price without compromising quality. Each volume features the original-quality text on fine, natural-colored paper, with a sewn-binding for durability. The antique-style khaki rattan Kidskin cover, embellished with red embossing on the covers and spines, adds a touch of elegance. Furthermore, the inclusion of a red marking ribbon in each volume allows for easy bookmarking.
With a total of 2840 pages, this hardcover set measures 9" x 5¾" (spine thickness differs per volume). Immerse yourself in the profound teachings of the Gospels with the Catena Aurea, a timeless masterpiece treasured by serious students of the Holy Scriptures.
Thomas and Bernadette did an incredible job packing and shipping the Catena Aurea set that I ordered as a gift for our parish priest. The books were in pristine condition when I opened the box. Also, a handwritten note on a beautiful card was included inside, expressing gratitude and offering blessings. I cannot thank you enough for the personal touches and care; it is rare these days. You two really helped me! Thank you and may God bless you too, Thomas and Bernadette.
I’ve been wanting to add this to my library for quite some time now and was so happy when it came in. My order was handled quickly and with great care! Will definitely be purchasing more…
I bought this less than a week before Christmas as a gift for my husband and not only did it arrive on time, but there was such a thoughtful letter inside. Also, the price was more reasonable than anything on Amazon. Thanks!!!!
A must have for every Catholic family! It is expensive but worth every penny. It is for many generations to come as well. His use of Church Fathers is excellent to help us understand Scripture. St Thomas Aquinas pray for us!
I am so pleased with this set of books! Ordered for my husband, and I received the books very quickly. They are packaged so nicely, and the package included a very thoughtful handwritten note.
When will I receive my book?
All orders placed before 4PM ET (11AM Saturdays) are shipped the same day! From there, it depends on the shipping method (see shipping methods at checkout). Free shipping generally takes ~6 business days to arrive.
