We must next discuss the quality which the world and those who rise again will have after the judgment.
Here a threefold matter offers itself to our consideration: (1) The state and quality of the world; (2) The state of the blessed; (3) The state of the wicked.
Under the first head there are five points of inquiry:
A Whether there will be a renewal of the world?
A Whether the movement of the heavenly bodies will cease?
A Whether the heavenly bodies will be more brilliant?
A Whether the elements will receive an additional clarity?
A Whether the animals and plants will remain?
