Of Satisfaction, as to its Nature
We must now consider satisfaction; about which four things have to be considered:
- Its nature;
- Its possibility;
- Its quality;
- The means whereby man offers satisfaction to God.
Under the first head there are three points of inquiry:
- Whether satisfaction is a virtue or an act of virtue?
- Whether it is an act of justice?
- Whether the definition of satisfaction contained in the text is suitable?
