Thomas Aquinas (c1224-75) is believed by many to be the most important Western philosopher of his time. Aquinas was a prolific writer and was reported at times to be able write two works at a time via dictation. One of his most important works, the ‘Summa Theologiae’ discusses many topics ranging from the existence of God to what is and is not a sin. In this extract, he discusses lust and explains why he believes lusting for sex is forbidden.
