CIRCLES OF WISE SOULS

***

Circles of twelve souls

Famous in church history

Each soul a wise soul

***

NOTE: The circles headed by St. Thomas Aquinas and by St. Bonaventure have 12 souls each, including their leaders. Each person is wise and famous. Some are written about in the Bible. Others are famous church leaders and philosophers. St. Thomas Aquinas and Peter Damian argued that philosophy is the handmaiden of theology: Philosophy serves theology.
