Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas
FP: Treatise On The Angels
Q[51] Of The Angels In Comparison With Bodies
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]  

We next inquire about the angels in comparison with corporeal things; and in the first place about their comparison with bodies; secondly, of the angels in comparison with corporeal places; and, thirdly, of their comparison with local movement.

Under the first heading there are three points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether angels have bodies naturally united to them?

A[2] Whether they assume bodies?

A[3] Whether they exercise functions of life in the bodies assumed?
