We have now to consider the ministers by whom the sacrament of Baptism is conferred.
And concerning this there are eight points of inquiry:
A Whether it belongs to a deacon to baptize?
A Whether this belongs to a priest, or to a bishop only?
A Whether a layman can confer the sacrament of Baptism?
A Whether a woman can do this?
A Whether an unbaptized person can baptize?
A Whether several can at the same time baptize one and the same person?
A Whether it is essential that someone should raise the person baptized from the sacred font?
A Whether he who raises someone from the sacred font is bound to instruct him?
