Saint Thomas Aqinas was wronglfully accused of heresy by a lone, bishop, Tempier.Tempier asserted that Aquinas' writing on the question of God's nature were heretical. Tempier asserted that God was all powerful and was not limited by reason.Aquinas wrote that God's nature was reasonable.Tempier was wrong.As it says in the Gospel of  John,  God's nature is reason.Tempier was a voluntarist who said that God could do anything.Aquinas won this battle.He was canonized around the year 1324 by Pope John XXII.  Aquinas was declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius V in the year 1567. Pope Leo XXIII declared Thomism to be the philosophy of the Church in the year 1879.   This was confirmed by Pope Paul VI in 1964.
