Of the Cause of Prophecy

We must now consider the cause of prophecy. Under this head there are six points of inquiry:

  1. Whether prophecy is natural?
  2. Whether it is from God by means of the angels?
  3. Whether a natural disposition is requisite for prophecy?
  4. Whether a good life is requisite?
  5. Whether any prophecy is from the demons?
  6. Whether prophets of the demons ever tell what is true?
