Summary expansion
Bruni's original translation had been published around 1437, and in the preface to this edition, he acknowledges the difficulty of the task which had taken him 18 years and explains how he came to see the need for a complete revision and correction. Although Bruni's rendering is perhaps too free and arbitrary, it did make the Politics accessible to a great many Greekless readers. The importance of Aquinas as an interpreter of Aristotle was that, together with his mentor Albertus Magnus, he constructed out of the philosopher's writings a powerful defense of the Christian faith, reconciled in all points with the doctrines of the Church. This treatment of Aristotle, known as Scholasticism, held sway until the 15th century when most scholars felt the need of a fresh approach
