< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]  

We have now to consider the sacrament of the Eucharist; and first of all we treat of the sacrament itself; secondly, of its matter; thirdly, of its form; fourthly, of its effects; fifthly, of the recipients of this sacrament; sixthly, of the minister; seventhly, of the rite.

Under the first heading there are six points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the Eucharist is a sacrament?

A[2] Whether it is one or several sacraments?

A[3] Whether it is necessary for salvation?

A[4] Its names;

A[5] Its institution;

A[6] Its figures.
