Saint Thomas Aquinas [1] is a painting by Carlo Crivelli.

Carlo Crivelli's painting depicts Thomas Aquinas balancing both the Bible and the Church in his hands, symbolizing the importance of the man, his ministry, and his theology.

During the 13th century, Saint Thomas Aquinas sought to reconcile Aristotelian philosophy with Augustinian theology. Aquinas employed both reason and faith in the study of metaphysics, moral philosophy, and religion. While Aquinas accepted the existence of God on faith, he offered five proofs of God's existence to support such a belief.
