Q[163] Of The First Man's Sin
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider the first man's sin which was pride: and (1) his sin; (2) its punishment; (3) the temptation whereby he was led to sin.

Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether pride was the first man's first sin?

A[2] What the first man coveted by sinning?

A[3] Whether his sin was more grievous than all other sins?

A[4] Which sinned more grievously, the man or the woman?
