Q[66] On The Order Of Creation Towards Distinction
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must next consider the work of distinction; first, the ordering of creation towards distinction; secondly, the distinction itself. Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether formlessness of created matter preceded in time its formation?

A[2] Whether the matter of all corporeal things is the same?

A[3] Whether the empyrean heaven was created contemporaneously with formless matter?

A[4] Whether time was created simultaneously with it?
