Thomas Aquinas was one of the best scholastic philosophers of the Roman Catholic Church. Aquinas provided logical grounds for a significant number of Catholic dogmas. Hence, he is considered as a ‘doctor’ and one of the early fathers of the church. Like other scholastics, Thomas Aquinas used the Greco-Roman philosophy, particularly the Aristotelian logic, to provide [what he hoped was] rational foundation for faith.
