Houses without libraries,
are like homes without souls.

Aristotle

Aquinas

1. Compendium Theologiae

Receive from my hands this compendious treatise on Christian teaching to keep continually before your eyes.

My whole endeavor in the present work is taken up with these three virtues. I shall treat first of faith, then of hope, and lastly of charity. This is the Apostle’s arrangement which, for that matter, right reason imposes. Love cannot be rightly ordered unless the proper goal of our hope is established; nor can there be any hope if knowledge of the truth is lacking. Therefore the first thing necessary is faith, by which you may come to a knowledge of the truth. Secondly, hope is necessary, that your intention may be fixed on the right end. Thirdly, love is necessary, that your affections may be perfectly put in order.

Boethius

1. Consolation of Philosophy

The Consolation of Philosophy was written by Boethius (c.524).

According to Green, celebrates “the life of the mind, or reason, and the possibility of its ultimate victory over the misfortunes and frustrations which attend fallen man’s pursuit of transitory substitutes for the Supreme Good which alone can satisfy human desires.”
