We next inquire about the angels in comparison with corporeal things; and in the first place about their comparison with bodies; secondly, of the angels in comparison with corporeal places; and, thirdly, of their comparison with local movement.

A1 Whether angels have bodies naturally united to them?
A2 Whether they assume bodies?
A3 Whether they exercise functions of life in the bodies assumed?
