Sacred MonsterThe Sacred Monster of Thomism: An Introduction to the Life and Legacy of Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange
Richard Peddicord , OP

The Sacred Monster of Thomism (the epithet comes from François Mauriac) is the first full-length study of the life and thought of the most influential Dominican theologian in the first half of the twentieth century, and the scourge of liberal theologians everywhere.

Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange taught at the Angelicum for fifty years and was the doctoral dissertation director for Pope John Paul II.

The Sacred Monster of Thomism sketches the life of Garrigou and examines his philosophical disputes with Henri Bergson and Maurice Blondel, his theological (and political) disputes with Jacques Maritain and M.-Dominique Chenu, and examines his Thomism and approaches to theology and spirituality.

Fr. Richard Peddicord is President of Aquinas Institute of Theology, St. Louis University and served as associate professor of systematic theology.
