Q51 Of The Angels In Comparison With Bodies
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3  

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.

Under the first heading there are three points of inquiry:

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?
