XP: Treatise On Contrition
Q[24] Of Absolution From Excommunication
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]  

We must now consider absolution from excommunication: under which head there are three points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether any priest can absolve his subject from excommunication?

A[2] Whether a man can be absolved from excommunication against his will?

A[3] Whether a man can be absolved from one excommunication without being absolved from another?
