Second edition of English Jesuit Compton-Carletons theological discourse and examination of Divi Thomae, St. Thomas Aquinas. ¶ Carleton, a Scholastic theologian, played an important role in medieval philosophy, and is best remembered for his Philosophica Universa, Logica (1649) in which he broke with his predecessors and took the dramatic step of attributing dimensionality to infinite space, which he still regarded as Gods infinite immensity . (Grant, pp. 295-296). ¶ Thomas Carleton, sometimes called Thomas Compton Carleton or Thomas Compton, a Jesuit, was a native of Cambridgeshire. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1617, being then in the twenty-fourth year of his age (Southwell, Bibl. Soc. Jesu, p. 761). Having been ordained priest at Douay in 1622, he was sent to England in 1625 and was professed of the four vows 21 May 1628 (Folby, Records, vii. 154). He taught rhetoric and belles lettres in the English college at St. Omer, and philosophy and theology for many years at Liege, where he was also for a long time prefect of studies. He died at Liege on 24 March 1665-6. Oliver states he was deservedly admired for his classic taste and his skill in philosophical and theological science (DNB, Vol. 11, p. 452).
