We are taking the unprecedented step of releasing the first part of Volume IX before we complete the second part. We will be releasing Volume IXb, as well as Volume IX as one complete volume, once the second part is finished.
We have several reasons for releasing Volume IXa now. First, it covers Questions 60-90 of the Tertia Pars, and so ends where St. Thomas Aquinas’s own manuscript of the Summa Theologiae ended at his death. Volume IXb will begin with the first question of the Supplementum, the text of which is based on Aquinas’s Commentary on the Sentences. Second, while the work on what is now contained in Volume IXa was done, the work on the Supplementum is much more involved. The digital files of the Latin are rough and require far more editing than was necessary for the previous volumes, especially given our standard of continuing to faithfully present the Latin of the Leonine edition of the Summa.
This volume contains Questions 60-90 of the Tertia Pars, and consists of the beginning of the Treatise on the Sacraments. It contains the discussion of The Sacraments, in General; Baptism; Confirmation; the Eucharist; and the beginning of Penance.
