Under this head there are ten points of inquiry:
A Whether those who are not practiced in the observance of the commandments should enter religion?
A Whether it is lawful for a person to be bound by vow to enter religion?
A Whether those who are bound by vow to enter religion are bound to fulfil their vow?
A Whether those who vow to enter religion are bound to remain there in perpetuity?
A Whether children should be received into religion?
A Whether one should be withheld from entering religion through deference to one's parents?
A Whether parish priests or archdeacons may enter religion?
A Whether one may pass from one religious order to another?
A Whether one ought to induce others to enter religion?
A Whether serious deliberation with one's relations and friends is requisite for entrance into religion?
