Abstract: If Thomas Aquinas had to be given a religious name, as it is customary among Carmelites, he could have been called Thomas a Creatore. With this proposal in his delighting essay on Aquinas, G.K. Chesterton has underscored a ruling perspective of Thomistic thought. This ruling perspective of the unity of theology of creation and salvation underlies the following affirmation which I understand as an urgent plea for interdisciplinary learning and dialogue to be sought by theologians: "Error circa creaturas redundat infalsam de Deo scientiam, et hominum mentes a Deo abducit in quem fides dirigere nititur" (Summa contra Gentiles 11,3).
