Each Part of the Summa theologiae is divided into questions, which are in turn subdivided into articles.
- Each question focuses on a specific theme, which is examined in a number of individual articles
- Each article is a discussion of an issue that includes a variety of views
Each article is divided into five sections:
- Question posed
- Objections (arguments "that can appear problematic when viewed from Aquinas' position")
- Authority quoted to the contrary (of the objections)
- Aquinas' determination, or solution, of the question
- Aquinas' replies to the objections
