HISTORY of Christian Theology

is a term derived from the Latin word for “strengthening,” and is one of the seven sacraments of Roman Catholic Church and of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In Catholicism and Orthodoxy this sacrament involves anointing with oil and the laying on of hands to bestow the Holy Spirit upon a previously baptized member and to strengthen them in faith. In Roman Catholicism this sacrament can only be performed by a bishop. Usually occurs when a young person enters early adulthood. Other traditions, such as Anglicanism and Lutheranism, also engage in this practice but it is regarded as a sacrament.
