The worst heresy

“It is argued according to the insanity of certain people, that corporeal things were caused by an evil god, […] and that is the worst heresy.”

-Saint Thomas Aquinas, Super Sententiarum IV, D.26, q.1, a.3.

One thought on “The worst heresy

  1. I came across that translation in Beth Mortensen’s book on The Relation of the Juridical and the Sacramental in Matrimony According to Thomas Aquinas. The original:
    “…nisi ponatur secundum quorumdam insaniam, quod res corporales causatae sunt a Deo malo; ex quo forte ista opinio derivatur quae in littera tangitur; et ideo est pessima haeresis.”
