< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]  

We now have to consider the persons as compared to one another: firstly, with regard to equality and likeness; secondly, with regard to mission. Concerning the first there are six points of inquiry.

A[1] Whether there is equality among the divine persons?

A[2] Whether the person who proceeds is equal to the one from Whom He proceeds in eternity?

A[3] Whether there is any order among the divine persons?

A[4] Whether the divine persons are equal in greatness?

A[5] Whether the one divine person is in another?

A[6] Whether they are equal in power?
