Given that there must be at least one or two people interested in theology / medieval philosophy who speak Spanish around here...or better put, given that I hope there are, I wanted to see if anyone knew of an online store that sells BAC's edition of the Summa Theologica (Suma de Teología in BAC's version). I got the first volume from my brother as a gift, and as I am nearing the end of it, the other four volumes are becoming kind of urgent!
I already contacted the publishing house to see if they had any distributors in the U.S. or in Mty, Mexico (to which I go pretty often), but the closest they had was Mexico City and, well, I don't go there that often. So I figure that online shopping might be the way to go in this case.
Now, the problem, of course, is that online religious bookstores don't sell the Summa Theologica or similar stuff because it frankly wouldn't sell that well, so I haven't found a site that has volumes II, III, IV, and V available. Any tips or info (except for online versions of the book, since I still can't abandon hard copies) would be much appreciated!

(Yes, I know, it sounds pretentious to say that I'm reading the thing. I wish I could have avoided naming it altogether, but I've found many online stores that only sell other BAC books instead, so it kind of became a necessity - at the expense of sounding pretentious without meaning to.)

Hi Fabio!

Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I actually did write them and I'm afraid they didn't have much information, save for their distributors in Mexico City. No luck with them having information about online distributors either.

Hi Marcelo,

I think I have the answer to your search. Please write me an email through Proz, I am not sure as of whether we can or not plug-in companies on the forums.

Regards,
Paula
