Thomas Aquinas on Capital Punishment - Dictionary of Arguments

Rawls I 215
Capital Punishment/Thomas Aquinas/Aquinas/Rawls: Aquinas justified the capital punishment for heretics on the grounds that it was a much more serious matter to corrupt belief than to falsify money, because it destroys the belief that is the life of the soul. (Th. Aquinas: Summa Theologica, II-II, q. 11. art. 3.)
RawlsVsThomas/RawlsVsAquinas: the premises on which Thomas Aquinas draws upon here cannot be supported by generally accepted conclusions. It is a dogma that belief is the life of the soul and that it is necessary for the life of the soul to suppress deviations from the belief.
