Quick Reference

The works perhaps most associated with Thomas Waleys's name today are his manual on the art of preaching and his continuation of Nicholas Trevet's classicizing commentary on St Augustine's De civitate Dei, which became virtually the standard apparatus to Augustine's great work in the later medieval period. The central drama of Thomas's life, however, was an accusation of heresy and subsequent trial before the Inquisition in Avignon on charges made in the context of the debate over the beatific vision.
