We must now consider the manner in which prophetic knowledge is conveyed, and under this head there are four points of inquiry:
A Whether the prophets see God's very essence?
A Whether the prophetic revelation is effected by the infusion of certain species, or by the infusion of Divine light alone?
A Whether prophetic revelation is always accompanied by abstraction from the sense?
A Whether prophecy is always accompanied by knowledge of the things prophesied?
