Though he did not belong to the most powerful branch of the family, Landulf of Aquino was a man of means. As a knight in the service of King Roger II , he held the title miles. Thomas's mother, Theodora, belonged to the Rossi branch of the Neapolitan Caracciolo family.
While the rest of the family's sons pursued military careers,  the family intended for Thomas to follow his uncle into the abbacy;  this would have been a normal career path for a younger son of southern Italian nobility.
Julian, a Dominican preacher in Naples, who was part of the active effort by the Dominican order to recruit devout followers. Thomas's change of heart did not please his family. At one point, two of his brothers resorted to the measure of hiring a prostitute to seduce him. According to legend, Thomas drove her away wielding a fire iron and two angels appeared to him as he slept and strengthened his determination to remain celibate.
In her mind, a secret escape from detention was less damaging than an open surrender to the Dominicans. But Albertus prophetically exclaimed: He lectured on the Bible as an apprentice professor, and upon becoming a baccalaureus Sententiarum bachelor of the Sentences  devoted his final three years of study to commenting on Peter Lombard 's Sentences.
In the first of his four theological syntheses, Thomas composed a massive commentary on the Sentences titled Scriptum super libros Sententiarium Commentary on the Sentences. Aside from his masters writings, he wrote De ente et essentia On Being and Essence for his fellow Dominicans in Paris.

He returned to Naples where he was appointed as general preacher by the provincial chapter of 29 September In September he was called to Orvieto as conventual lector he was responsible for the pastoral formation of the friars unable to attend a studium generale. Modern scholarship has confirmed that Thomas was indeed the author of these texts, a point that some had contested. This same year he was ordered by the Dominican Chapter of Agnani  to teach at the studium conventuale at the Roman convent of Santa Sabina , founded some years before, in Prior to this time the Roman Province had offered no specialized education of any sort, no arts, no philosophy; only simple convent schools, with their basic courses in theology for resident friars, were functioning in Tuscany and the meridionale during the first several decades of the order's life.
The new studium provinciale at Santa Sabina was to be a more advanced school for the province. As the Apostle says in 1 Corinthians 3: In November he was with Thomas and his associate and secretary Reginald of Piperno , as they left Viterbo on their way to Paris to begin the academic year. A new convent of the Order at the Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva had a modest beginning in as a community for women converts, but grew rapidly in size and importance after being given over to the Dominicans friars in In the 20th century the college was relocated to the convent of Saints Dominic and Sixtus and was transformed into the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum.
Louvre, Paris In the Dominican order assigned Thomas to be regent master at the University of Paris for a second time, a position he held until the spring of Part of the reason for this sudden reassignment appears to have arisen from the rise of " Averroism " or "radical Aristotelianism " in the universities. In response to these perceived errors, Thomas wrote two works, one of them being De unitate intellectus, contra Averroistas On the Unity of Intellect, against the Averroists in which he reprimands Averroism as incompatible with Christian doctrine.
A year before Thomas re-assumed the regency at the —67 Paris disputations, Franciscan master William of Baglione accused Thomas of encouraging Averroists, most likely counting him as one of the "blind leaders of the blind".
