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 Whether the Eucharist is a sacrament?
A Whether it is one or several sacraments?
A Whether it is necessary for salvation?
A Its names;
A Its institution;
A Its figures.
