Q111 The Action Of The Angels On Man
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4  

We now consider the action of the angels on man, and inquire: (1) How far they can change them by their own natural power; (2) How they are sent by God to the ministry of men; (3) How they guard and protect men.

Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:

A1 Whether an angel can enlighten the human intellect?

A2 Whether he can change man's will?

A3 Whether he can change man's imagination?

A4 Whether he can change man's senses?
