I join here a pdf file containing a part of the Thomas' commentary on the Paul's Epistula ad Philemonem. This epistula contains only one chapter and Thomas' commentary contains only 3 parts: a prooemium, a lectio 1 and a lectio 2.

I present the lectio 1 which comments the verses 1 to 9 of Paul's chapter.

This is not at all a translation. My presentation has for main purpose to make visible the hierarchical structure of Thomas' latin comments.

Moreover, after having noticed that Thomas' style is based on pairs "comment | biblical-reference-as-echo" my presentation tries to make visible these pairs which can be difficultly seen in cursive lecture.
