We must now consider Fraternal Correction, under which head there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether fraternal correction is an act of charity?

A[2] Whether it is a matter of precept?

A[3] Whether this precept binds all, or only superiors?

A[4] Whether this precept binds the subject to correct his superior?

A[5] Whether a sinner may correct anyone?

A[6] Whether one ought to correct a person who becomes worse through being corrected?

A[7] Whether secret correction should precede denouncement?

A[8] Whether witnesses should be called before denouncement?
