Q[32] Of The Active Principle In Christ's Conception
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We shall now consider the active principle in Christ's conception: concerning which there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the Holy Ghost was the active principle of Christ's conception?

A[2] Whether it can be said that Christ was conceived of the Holy Ghost?

A[3] Whether it can be said that the Holy Ghost is Christ's father according to the flesh?

A[4] Whether the Blessed Virgin cooperated actively in Christ's conception?
