Thomas de Vio, known as Caietan or Cajetan, born on 20 February 1469 in Gaeta (in Latin Caieta, hence his nickname) in what is now the province of Latina, Lazio, and died on 10 August 1534 in Rome, was a 16th century Italian theologian and cardinal.
He participated in the development of the bull Exsurge Domine and endeavoured to comment on the Summa Theologica by Saint Thomas Aquinas in order to counteract Luther's theses. His interpretations are very precise and based on logic. Cajetan is considered to be one of the first thinkers who systematised the thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas into the school of thought known as Thomism.
