Jack “The Agnostic” Garcia continues his in depth analysis of the Christian rite of initiation from the Middle Ages to the present day. First off, Jack travels back to the early Dark Ages and examines the shift from the Baptizing of adult converts to infants and children. Next up, it’s the scholastic movement, the school men (Peter Abelard,St. Thomas Aquinas -etc) who would spend centuries applying logic and reason not only to the contradictions of Religion and Philosophy but to Christianity itself, and their different metaphysical views on the ritual. Finally, Jack explores the Protestant reformers (Martin Luther,John Calvin -etc) and their thoughts on Baptism plus the importance of the Christian initiation ritual ceremony in the modern day culture of theological pluralism.
