Of the Eternal Law
We must now consider each law by itself; and
- The eternal law;
- The natural law;
- The human law;
- The old law;
- The new law, which is the law of the Gospel. Of the sixth law which is the law of the "fomes," suffice what we have said when treating of original sin.
Concerning the first there are six points of inquiry:
- What is the eternal law?
- Whether it is known to all?
- Whether every law is derived from it?
- Whether necessary things are subject to the eternal law?
- Whether natural contingencies are subject to the eternal law?
- Whether all human things are subject to it?
