This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1877 Excerpt: ...prove it both by Peter and Paul." William does not make this good; for he really refers to Mark xvi. 16; see a. Perhaps he was thinking also of 1 Pet. iii. 21; Eph. v. 26, 27. (b. 10. 348; a. 11. 230.) "That text refers to extreme cases; such as the baptism of Saracens or Jews." The words in extremis probably refer to the case of people lying at the point of death. See the next note. (b. 10. 350; a. 11. 232.) "That even an infidel (or pagan) in that case (i.e. in a case of extreme need) may baptize a heathen; and he (i.e. the baptized person) may, for his true belief, when he loses his life, have the inheritance of heaven, just like any other baptized person." This seems a little startling at first, but William had doubtless good authority for his statement. Professor Pearson, whom I consulted about this question, at once gave me the following quotations. At the council of Florence, in 1438, it was ruled as follows. "In casu autem necessitatis non solum saccrdos vcl diaconus sed etiam laicus vel mulier, imo patlanus el herelicus baptizare potest, dummodo formam servet ccclesiae et facere intendat quod facit ecclesia;" Eugenius ad Armeuos; Concilia, Tom. 33, p. 575 (ed. Paris). "Casus. Paganus quidam baptizavit hominem in forma ecclesiae; quare qmcsitum fuit, quid erat faciendum. Et respondit Isidorus, quod Papa non attendit baptizantem hominem, sed Dei virtutem in baptismo."--Gratiani Decrcta; De Baptismo, pars iii. distiuctio 4, col. 2073, ed. Antverpiae, 1573. See also Hook's Church Dictionary, art. Baptism, Lay; where we read that in the Constitutions of Archbishop Peckham, in 1281, it is ruled that infants baptized by laymen or women (when in imminent danger of death) shall not be baptized again; and the prie...
