We must now consider the gifts of understand and knowledge, which respond to the virtue of faith.
With regard to the gift of understanding there are eight points of inquiry:
A Whether understanding is a gift of the Holy Ghost?
A Whether it can be together with faith in the same person?
A Whether the understanding which is a gift of the Holy Ghost, is only speculative, or practical also?
A Whether all who are in a state of grace have the gift of understanding?
A Whether this gift is to be found in those who are without grace?
A Of the relationship of the gift of understanding to the other gifts;
A Which of the beatitudes corresponds to this gift?
A Which of the fruits?
