< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider the impediment of the condition of slavery. Under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the condition of slavery is an impediment to matrimony?

A[2] Whether a slave can marry without his master's consent?

A[3] Whether a man who is already married can make himself a slave without his wife's consent?

A[4] Whether the children should follow the condition of their father or of their mother?
