We must now consider the parts of observance.
We shall consider (1) dulia, whereby we pay honor and other things pertaining thereto to those who are in a higher position; (2) obedience, whereby we obey their commands.
Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
A Whether honor is a spiritual or a corporal thing?
A Whether honor is due to those only who are in a higher position?
A Whether dulia, which pays honor and worship to those who are above us, is a special virtue, distinct from latria?
A Whether it contains several species?
