Summa Theologiae by St Thomas Aquinas
AP: Appendix 1
Q1 Of The Quality Of Those Souls Who Depart This Life With Original Sin Only
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2  

The following two questions were compiled by Nicolai from St. Thomas'Commentary on the Sentences, and by him included in the supplement between Questions 70 and 71.

We must next consider the various qualities of souls that are stripped of their bodies, according to their respective states; and first we shall treat of the souls which depart this life with original sin only.

Under this head there are two points of inquiry:

A1 Whether these souls suffer from a bodily fire, and are inflicted with punishment by fire?

A2 Whether these souls suffer from a spiritual torment within themselves?
