Of the Assaults of the Demons
We now consider the assaults of the demons. Under this head there are five points of inquiry:
- Whether men are assailed by the demons?
- Whether to tempt is proper to the devil?
- Whether all the sins of men are to be set down to the assaults or temptations of the demons?
- Whether they can work real miracles for the purpose of leading men astray?
- Whether the demons who are overcome by men, are hindered from making further assaults?
