Q[60] Of The Love Or Dilection Of The Angels
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

The next subject for our consideration is that act of the will which is love or dilection; because every act of the appetitive faculty comes of love.

Under this heading there are five points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether there is natural love in the angels?

A[2] Whether there is in them love of choice?

A[3] Whether the angel loves himself with natural love or with love of choice?

A[4] Whether one angel loves another with natural love as he loves himself?

A[5] Whether the angel loves God more than self with natural love?
