Don't just read the Schoolmen, read ALL the Fathers, Saints, Doctors and various Councils of the Church and I assure you that you will find not one of them who made mythology out of Genesis 1-11. A great Catholic book that shows the utter imcompatibility of evolution--be it biological or philosophical with the Faith is the masterful The Doctrines of Genesis 1-11 by Rev. Victor P. Warkulwiz M.S.S. Another book (not Catholic but excellent) is Father Seraphim Rose's Genesis, Creation and Early Man.
