Of Fear

We must now consider the vices opposed to fortitude:

  1. Fear;
  2. Fearlessness;
  3. Daring.
Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
  1. Whether fear is a sin?
  2. Whether it is opposed to fortitude?
  3. Whether it is a mortal sin?
  4. Whether it excuses from sin, or diminishes it?
