Traditional theism has tended to take up the issue of Divine nature through an analysis of God’s capacities and/or qualities and the relationship between these and the various dimensions of our experience.
Aquinas was born in 1225 in Roccasecca, Italy. At the age of five, he was entered in the Benedictine abbey at Montecassino. It was there that he was introduced to the recently rediscovered works of Aristotle, and to the new mendicant order of the Dominicans, which he eventually joined.
He spent most of his adult life working on behalf of the order and the Church as one of its predominant theologians, defending his increasingly influential Aristotelian-oriented theology from critics and the church from heresies of various sorts.
