Q94 Of The State And Condition Of The First Man As Regards His Intellect
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4  

We next consider the state or condition of the first man; first, as regards his soul; secondly, as regards his body. Concerning the first there are two things to be considered: (1) The condition of man as to his intellect; (2) the condition of man as to his will.

Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:

A1 Whether the first man saw the Essence of God?

A2 Whether he could see the separate substances, that is, the angels?

A3 Whether he possessed all knowledge?

A4 Whether he could err or be deceived?
