St. Thomas's character appears @20:07 and is the main feature for the rest of the episode:

Kephapaulos

Steve Allen mentions something in that video similar to what Charles Coulombe said about St. Bonaventure calling St. Thomas the "father of all heresies." Is there any truth to that though? It seems a little odd to refer to St. Thomas as a radical too. Even though Aristotle was being used more again in his time with initial opposition and later extensive usage, it would be tragic for a comparison to be made with that to the initial persecution of the modernist theologians and their later approval.

I bet it's a myth. Torrell, O.P.'s Aquinas's Summa: Background, Structure, and Reception p. 13 says "The Franciscans were also implicated in this opposition [to Averroës's On the Unity of the Intellect] and Saint Bonaventure sided with Thomas."
