< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We now consider the assaults of the demons. Under this head there are five points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether men are assailed by the demons?

A[2] Whether to tempt is proper to the devil?

A[3] Whether all the sins of men are to be set down to the assaults or temptations of the demons?

A[4] Whether they can work real miracles for the purpose of leading men astray?

A[5] Whether the demons who are overcome by men, are hindered from making further assaults?
