Of the Effect of the Keys

We must now consider the effect of the keys under which head there are four points of inquiry:

  1. Whether the power of the keys extends to the remission of guilt?
  2. Whether a priest can remit sin as to the punishment?
  3. Whether a priest can bind in virtue of the power of the keys?
  4. Whether he can loose and bind according to his own judgment?
