HISTORY of Christian Theology

is a term referring to individuals seeking baptism in the ancient church who first engaged in a long period of instruction in preparation for their baptism, which usually occurred only twice a year at Easter and on the Day of Pentecost. By the 4th Century the Church officially recognized these individuals as semi-members of the Christian community. Many persons delayed baptism for years while they stayed in this quasi-membership status.
