Of Those Who Can Excommunicate or Be Excommunicated
We must now consider those who can excommunicate or be excommunicated. Under this head there are six points of inquiry:
- Whether every priest can excommunicate?
- Whether one who is not a priest can excommunicate?
- Whether one who is excommunicated or suspended, can excommunicate?
- Whether anyone can excommunicate himself, or an equal, or a superior?
- Whether a multitude can be excommunicated?
- Whether one who is already excommunicated can be excommunicated again?
