(Greek: klinikos, of a bed) In general, Baptism given to anyone sick abed; in particular, Baptism administered at child-birth. "To be born," is an essential for Baptism. Medical men as well as theologians now teach as morally certain that the human foetus is animated at conception by the rational soul. Hence Baptism in difficult parturition or within the womb is sometimes required.
