< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4   A5   A6   A7   A8   A9  

We must now consider the fire of the final conflagration: and under this head there are nine points of inquiry:

A1 Whether any cleansing of the world is to take place?

A2 Whether it will be effected by fire?

A3 Whether that fire is of the same species as elemental fire?

A4 Whether that fire will cleanse also the higher heavens?

A5 Whether that fire will consume the other elements?

A6 Whether it will cleanse all the elements?

A7 Whether that fire precedes or follows the judgment?

A8 Whether men are to be consumed by that fire?

A9 Whether the wicked will be involved therein?
