Title Peter of Ireland, The University of Naples and Thomas Aquinas' Early Education
 
Creator Dunne, Michael
 
Subject Philosophy
 
Description This article revists the life and academic career of Peter of Ireland (Petrus de Hibernia, ca. 1200-1260) whose Opera Omina were edited by the author (Louvain-Paris, 1993, 1996). A recapitulation is also given of a recent debate as to whether the early sources for the life of Thomas Aquinas were right in stating that Peter of Ireland taught the young Aquinas when the latter was a student at the university of Naples in the years 1239-44. While acknowledging that it is now impossible to be absolutely certain of this, the author argues that the likelihood remains that Aquinas was introduced to philosophy by an Irishman.
