Of Pride

We must next consider pride, and

  1. pride in general;
  2. the first man's sin, which we hold to have been pride. Under the first head there are eight points of inquiry:
  3. Whether pride is a sin?
  4. Whether it is a special vice?
  5. Wherein does it reside as in its subject?
  6. Of its species;
  7. Whether it is a mortal sin?
  8. Whether it is the most grievous of all sins?
  9. Of its relation to other sins;
  10. Whether it should be reckoned a capital vice?
