Biography/Description

T. was a Dominican, trained as a philosopher and theologian, the author of numerous works, including fulsome commentaries on the works of Thomas Aquinas and on many books of the Bible. As a cardinal of the Roman Church, T. was the pope’s legate to the Diet of Augsburg, where he tried unsuccessfully to get Martin Luther to recant his views. Later he pronounced judgment that the marriage of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon was valid. T. not only wrote large works, he also wrote a large number of treatises on various theological and moral matters, among which are the De cambiis and De monte pietatis (TUI 1584 t. 6.1).
