Of the Impediment of the Condition of Slavery

We must now consider the impediment of the condition of slavery. Under this head there are four points of inquiry:

  1. Whether the condition of slavery is an impediment to matrimony?
  2. Whether a slave can marry without his master's consent?
  3. Whether a man who is already married can make himself a slave without his wife's consent?
  4. Whether the children should follow the condition of their father or of their mother?
