We must now consider almsdeeds, under which head there are ten points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether almsgiving is an act of charity?

A[2] Of the different kinds of alms;

A[3] Which alms are of greater account, spiritual or corporal?

A[4] Whether corporal alms have a spiritual effect?

A[5] Whether the giving of alms is a matter of precept?

A[6] Whether corporal alms should be given out of the things we need?

A[7] Whether corporal alms should be given out of ill-gotten goods?

A[8] Who can give alms?

A[9] To whom should we give alms?

A[10] How should alms be given?
