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.
Beautiful set, just as described.
Great set of books for anyone serious about the faith. Came in quickly, in good condition, and full of prayers!
I ordered the Catena Aurea, and it arrived within 3 days. The books are in good condition, are bound well, and look beautiful. The package even came with a handwritten note! This website is an incredible resource for deepening one’s spirituality. Thank you!
The set arrived in great shape, I'm very happy with all four volumes. St Thomas is a delight to read, a scripture scholar he truly is and you can read him along with the four Gospels! St Thomas provides a ton of commentary from the early Fathers. In this set, the hardcover and binding are strong and the perfect size for serious reading in your hand. The text is clear with the font large enough for easy reading. Each volume comes with a red ribbon--nice. I'm very happy with this product.
St. Thomas Aquinas' compilation of gospel commentary is a work of art. It's stunning to see just how many unique things each of Church Fathers have to say about (seemingly) unimportant verses. I received this set of books as gift and highly recommend it to others as the perfect gift.
