Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4   A5   A6   A7   A8  

We have now to consider Christ's descent into hell; concerning which there are eight points of inquiry:

A1 Whether it was fitting for Christ to descend into hell?

A2 Into which hell did He descend?

A3 Whether He was entirely in hell?

A4 Whether He made any stay there?

A5 Whether He delivered the Holy Fathers from hell?

A6 Whether He delivered the lost from hell?

A7 Whether He delivered the children who died in original sin?

A8 Whether He delivered men from Purgatory?
