Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the following questions: (1) Are daemons and angels figures which are different from souls?; (2) As souls inclined towards goodness and souls attracted by evil do exist, can we speak of good angels and bad angels, good daemons and bad daemons or are the latter punitive figures, an instrument of divine will? In other words, are we dealing with autonomous beings with their own free will or are they always intermediaries with good as their aim?; and (3) If the angels are souls to whom tasks of mediation are assigned, who are the helpers that collaborate with God in the creation of mankind?.
