We must now consider the virtue itself of faith, and, in the first place, faith itself; secondly, those who have faith; thirdly, the cause of faith; fourthly, its effects.
Under the first head there are eight points of inquiry:
A What is faith?
A In what power of the soul does it reside?
A Whether its form is charity?
A Whether living [formata] faith and lifeless [informis] faith are one identically?
A Whether faith is a virtue?
A Whether it is one virtue?
A Of its relation to the other virtues;
A Of its certitude as compared with the certitude of the intellectual virtues.
