Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses general features of Roger Roseth's Lectura, and the characteristics of Roseth's style. The discussion is divided into two sections. The first part consists of the answers that Roseth gives to the five counterarguments. In the second section, Roseth presents three new doubts over the principal conclusion and finally responds to them. When applying conversions to Trinitarian sentences, Roseth focuses on the formal structure of the propositions. In an answer to a puzzle, Roseth says exterior acts are seen to increase charity but only indirectly: the increment of charity is based on interior acts of will, which are not affected by the constant repetition of exterior acts. As a second answer, Roseth says, very soon the proportional parts would become so small that it would not be possible to perceive them.
