< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]   A[7]   A[8]  

We must next consider pride, and (1) pride in general; (2) the first man's sin, which we hold to have been pride. Under the first head there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether pride is a sin?

A[2] Whether it is a special vice?

A[3] Wherein does it reside as in its subject?

A[4] Of its species;

A[5] Whether it is a mortal sin?

A[6] Whether it is the most grievous of all sins?

A[7] Of its relation to other sins;

A[8] Whether it should be reckoned a capital vice?
