Description The sacrament of baptism lies in the center of the Christian moral philosophy, theology, and eschatology as the necessary condition of human salvation. Dante reflects its importance many times in his Divine Comedy (4th canto of Inferno); Shakespeare lived the times of deep uncertainty concerning the validity of baptism, and we can find several remarks, probably even some "hidden messages" in plays (Hamlet 3.2; Romeo 1.2; 2.2 and elsewhere, especially in Henry VIII 5.4, and in Merchant of Venice 3.5).
