comment Who wrote the end of Deuteronomy?
@Daи I haven't discovered any liguistic cues(nor would I be qualified to, in the original languages). Since numerous commentators haven't either(including Keil & Delitzsch), the best answer is the most straitforward, that Joshua wrote it. The text records God spoke to Moses, and God spoke to Joshua and the ministry of Moses fell on Joshua who was anointed to succeed him, giving him authority to speak(and write) on God's behalf.

@user4404 I was going to include Pseudo-Dionysius the Areogapite, which both Suger and Aquinas quoted; it would have made for a much more lengthier response-but it may have touched on some keypoints which will help in in your paper. It would have also proved Aquinas did use an anagogic sense interpretation.

(sigh) Does the Heading of the Question Say, "Are There 2 Different Types of "Tongues" Spoken About in the NT?" Yes or No?

@Daи My bad-I edited my answer to include the Adam Clarke statement-does that address your concerns?

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
The question succinctly said "TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF TONGUES" so I'm not adding 'eisogesis'. If you don't want to refer to "speaking in mysteries"(1 Cor. 14:2) to "tongues of angels"(1 Cor. 13:1), that is your prerogative, but that is what the OP's question is about. It is clear we are NOT talking about prophecy. There are numerous sources to quote for "tongues of angels"; if one will accept 1 Cor. 13:1 as it is written, then one can acknowledge the existence of such-whether one agrees with it or not.

Although Innocent III's impatience with their progress in dispelling Albegensianism led to one of the most horrific chapters in Christianity-The Inquisition, Aquinas's approach from natural law was a basis for resolving the Dualistic tendencies as well as answer questions such as "just wars", "nature of God", 'mortal and venial sin". Aquinas's focus was more on humanity reconciling itself to God's will in this present life, versus a transcendent triumphalism which sees the church basking in the glory of God for all eternity.

(cont.) Theirs was a "works righteousness" agenda and they were Dualistic; they viewed the world as created by the evil one. They rebelled against the lavish expenditures of the church and only esteemed those who were as austere as they. Thus the Dominicans were a mendicant order, living austerely and surviving by begging as itinerant preachers. They mostly failed in their attempts to persuade the Albegenses. But they were instrumental in teaching new converts the doctrinal truths of Christianity, and Aquinas's Summa Theologica was instrumental in developing Systematic Theology.

comment What is the difference between St Thomas Aquinas and Abbot Suger's interpretation of the term “anagogic”?
Simple answer; 2 different men facing 2 different challenges. Both supported 'anagogic' interpretation-and both quote Dionysius. Sugar was uplifting the soul in anticipation of eternity, sparing no expense and ultimately incurring the scorn of the Albegenses for his lavish extremes, which favored the monarchy. The Dominicans, of which Aquinas was one, were originally founded to counter the Albegensian heresy, which saw the world and the soul as corrupt, and unable to appropriate grace except through a severe penitential lifestyle.

I wrote a lengthy answer, of which became accidentally deleted-only 1 paragraph survived-which in my extreme anguish I deleted. After I recover from my extreme chagrin, I may attempt this again.

Another argument appears to be that there is no such thing as "tongues of angels", Paul is loosely interpreting "ecstatic speaking" of which no interpretation is needed or required, but it should not be manifested during a normal church service, especially when unbelievers are present. I don't particularly agree with that view but a legitimate argument can be made for such which I would certainly +1 for.

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
The OP's question asked if "2 different types of tongues in the NT"; 1 of which are tongues of men, and 1 "mysteries of God", or tongues of angels per 1 Cor. 13:1. His question centers around these 2 entities, not whether or not the church at Corinth had issues which the Apostle Paul had to deal with. It is "ad hominem" to suggest that because the church in Corinth was immature, therefore their giftings are invalid. The 1st answer calls the 2 manifestations as 'different operations', and certainly an argument can be made for that.(cont.)
