Of the Gift of Wisdom

We must now consider the gift of wisdom which corresponds to charity; and firstly, wisdom itself, secondly, the opposite vice. Under the first head there are six points of inquiry:

  1. Whether wisdom should be reckoned among the gifts of the Holy Ghost?
  2. What is its subject?
  3. Whether wisdom is only speculative or also practical?
  4. Whether the wisdom that is a gift is compatible with mortal sin?
  5. Whether it is in all those who have sanctifying grace?
  6. Which beatitude corresponds to it?
