We next consider the guardianship exercised by the good angels; and their warfare against the bad angels.
Under the first head eight points of inquiry arise:
A Whether men are guarded by the angels?
A Whether to each man is assigned a single guardian angel?
A Whether the guardianship belongs only to the lowest order of angels?
A Whether it is fitting for each man to have an angel guardian?
A When does an angel's guardianship of a man begin?
A Whether the angel guardians always watch over men?
A Whether the angel grieves over the loss of the one guarded?
A Whether rivalry exists among the angels as regards their guardianship?
