By H.P. Kainz

A. "SEPARATE elements" AND lOR" ANGELS"? it really is fascinating to notice that, in an expressly theological treatise resembling the Summa theologiae, St. Thomas usually makes use of the time period "angel", in place of "separate substance"; whereas in works with a much less particular theological rationale - e. g. the Summa contra gentiles and the De substantiis separatis 1 - he commonly prefers the time period "separate substance". yet at any price there's little question that the 2 phrases, "separate sub­ stance" and "angel" have a definite interchangeability and equivalence within the works of St. Thomas. In different phrases, "the separate substance" is resembling "the angel, insofar as its lifestyles and attributes are knowable via human cause alone". And this has led Karl Barth 2 to cost that St. Thomas' angelology is essentially a philosophical presenta­ tion, with little relevance to theology. 1 we'd say that those works are "philosophical" insofar as arguments from cause are emphasised in them, instead of arguments from revelation or religion. even though, as Lescoe issues out (in the creation to his variation of the De substantUs separatis, p. 8), the treatise on separate components leads as much as theological subject-matter in Ch. 's XVII ff- particularly, an exposition of Catholic educating as present in Sacred Scripture, the Fathers, and particularly Dionysius. And Chenu continues that the Summa contra gentiles is largely a theological paintings, since it not just leads as much as theological subject-matter in Bk.
