< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider those who can grant indulgences: under which head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether every parish priest can grant indulgences?

A[2] Whether a deacon or another, who is not a priest, can grant indulgences?

A[3] Whether a bishop can grant them?

A[4] Whether they can be granted by one who is in mortal sin?
