Summa Theologiae by St. Thomas Aquinas
FP: Treatise On The One God
Q[4] The Perfection Of God
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]

A[1] Whether God is perfect?

A[2] Whether God is perfect universally, as having in Himself the perfections of all things?

A[3] Whether creatures can be said to be like God?
