Of the Subject of Original Sin
We must now consider the subject of original sin, under which head there are four points of inquiry:
- Whether the subject of original sin is the flesh rather than the soul?
- If it be the soul, whether this be through its essence, or through its powers?
- Whether the will prior to the other powers is the subject of original sin?
- Whether certain powers of the soul are specially infected, viz. the generative power, the concupiscible part, and the sense of touch?
