Q[70] Of Injustice With Regard To The Person Of The Witness
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider injustice with regard to the person of the witness. Under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether a man is bound to give evidence?

A[2] Whether the evidence of two or three witnesses suffices?

A[3] Whether a man's evidence may be rejected without any fault on his part?

A[4] Whether it is a mortal sin to bear false witness?
