Chapter 42.—81.  Adelphius of Thasbalte17431743     Thasbalte (Thasvalthe) was in ecclesiastical province of Byzacene.  An Adelphius is mentioned in Cypr. Ep. lxvii. said:  "It is surely without cause that they find fault with the truth in false and invidious terms, saying that we rebaptize, since the Church does not rebaptize heretics, but baptizes them."17441744     Conc. Carth. sec. 35.

82.  Truly enough it does not rebaptize them, because it only baptizes those who were not baptized before; and this earlier custom has only been confirmed in a later Council by a more careful perfecting of the truth.
