< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We must now consider the necessity of the sacraments; concerning which there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether sacraments are necessary for man's salvation?

A[2] Whether they were necessary in the state that preceded sin?

A[3] Whether they were necessary in the state after sin and before Christ?

A[4] Whether they were necessary after Christ's coming?
