< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider the cause of prophecy. Under this head there are six points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether prophecy is natural?

A[2] Whether it is from God by means of the angels?

A[3] Whether a natural disposition is requisite for prophecy?

A[4] Whether a good life is requisite?

A[5] Whether any prophecy is from the demons?

A[6] Whether prophets of the demons ever tell what is true?
