Of the Manner in which Prophetic Knowledge is Conveyed
We must now consider the manner in which prophetic knowledge is conveyed, and under this head there are four points of inquiry:
- Whether the prophets see God's very essence?
- Whether the prophetic revelation is effected by the infusion of certain species, or by the infusion of Divine light alone?
- Whether prophetic revelation is always accompanied by abstraction from the sense?
- Whether prophecy is always accompanied by knowledge of the things prophesied?
