Pope Francis to Liberalize the Sacrament of Baptism?
#7
I'm always intrigued by early Church policy on this which was the total opposite of this proposed liberalization. It was extremely common to delay baptism until adulthood, and to keep it from young or uncertain believers. We all know the anecdote about Ambrose of Milan.

Even the Vatican II antiquarians seem to have thought free and liberal baptism was a good doctrinal/liturgical development of the late imperial and early medieval Church.
