Baptismal Font

Baptist churches often have six steps down and six steps up to symbolize the sixth day of Holy Week, Good Friday.

The first seven chapters are focused on the symbolic or sacramental dimensions of the baptismal font, with the last three dedicated to the more practical concerns relative to building and locating a baptismal font.

The Baptismal Rite Notice the movement of the people involved in the rite. This, taken in connexion with the known customs of later ages, make it more than probable that the usual method of administration was by affusion only.

Frequency of thirteenth-century legislation on this point throughout Northern Europe reveals the prevalence of a passing superstitious belief in the magical efficacy of the font and its waters.
