This chapter presents some remarks about the previous chapter's portrayal of Aquinas as a fideist, and about the chapter's discussion of weak and soft evidentialism. It highlights two key features of Aquinas' views on faith that make it quite natural to represent him as assimilating it to knowledge and argues that trying to place Aquinas within a taxonomy that largely presupposes an evidentialist approach to knowledge is misconceived.
