< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4   A5   A6   A7  

After the foregoing we have now to treat of the mode of the angelic knowledge, concerning which there are seven points of inquiry:

A1 Whether the angel's intellect be sometimes in potentiality, and sometimes in act?

A2 Whether the angel can understand many things at the same time?

A3 Whether the angel's knowledge is discursive?

A4 Whether he understands by composing and dividing?

A5 Whether there can be error in the angel's intellect?

A6 Whether his knowledge can be styled as morning and evening?

A7 Whether the morning and evening knowledge are the same, or do they differ?
