We have now to consider Christ's descent into hell; concerning which there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether it was fitting for Christ to descend into hell?

A[2] Into which hell did He descend?

A[3] Whether He was entirely in hell?

A[4] Whether He made any stay there?

A[5] Whether He delivered the Holy Fathers from hell?

A[6] Whether He delivered the lost from hell?

A[7] Whether He delivered the children who died in original sin?

A[8] Whether He delivered men from Purgatory?
