< previous   Prologue   next >

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

In the next place we must consider bigamy and the irregularity contracted thereby. Under this head there are five points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether irregularity attaches to the bigamy that consists in having two successive wives?

A[2] Whether irregularity is contracted by one who has two wives at once?

A[3] Whether irregularity is contracted by marrying one who is not a virgin?

A[4] Whether bigamy is removed by Baptism?

A[5] Whether a dispensation can be granted to a bigamous person?
