We must now consider the comparison of one sin with another: under which head there are ten points of inquiry:
A Whether all sins and vices are connected with one another?
A Whether all are equal?
A Whether the gravity of sin depends on its object?
A Whether it depends on the excellence of the virtue to which it is opposed?
A Whether carnal sins are more grievous than spiritual sins?
A Whether the gravity of sins depends on their causes?
A Whether it depends on their circumstances?
A Whether it depends on how much harm ensues?
A Whether on the position of the person sinned against?
A Whether sin is aggravated by reason of the excellence of the person sinning?
