Of Satisfaction, as to its Nature

We must now consider satisfaction; about which four things have to be considered:

  1. Its nature;
  2. Its possibility;
  3. Its quality;
  4. The means whereby man offers satisfaction to God.
Under the first head there are three points of inquiry:
  1. Whether satisfaction is a virtue or an act of virtue?
  2. Whether it is an act of justice?
  3. Whether the definition of satisfaction contained in the text is suitable?
