What his contemporaries called the "novelties of Thomas" sprang from his conception of the way in which the man of Christian faith should philosophize. For his position implied that a quite new Christian philosophy was not only possible, but absolutely necessary in the face of the intellectual challenge raised by the new Aristotelianism.
