[QUAESTIO 24 UTRUM PARVULUS ISTE MORIENS ANTE BAPTISMUM DEBEAT SEPELIRI IN COEMETERIO] [Question 24. Whether that child dying before baptism ought to be buried in a cemetery]
Similiter et quarta quaestio sine argumento proponebatur, et ideo similiter ad ipsam dicendum breviter quod coemeterium non est nisi ad reverenter custodiendum corpora filiorum ecclesiae in terra usque ad finalem resurrectionem, quorum animae requiescunt cum Deo in caelis secundum quod aestimatur. Unde et excommunicatorum corpora, de quibus praesumitur ab ecclesia in foro exteriori quod [177] animae eorum sunt separatae ab ecclesia triumphante, in coemeterio non sepeliuntur. Quaere, cum ecclesia supponit animam dicti parvuli damnatam, corpus eius in coemeterio sepeliri non debet, maxime ea de causa, quod per sacramentum regenerationis numquam ecclesiae membrum fuit. Similarly, the fourth question was also put forward without argument, and therefore similarly it should briefly be said to it that the cemetery is merely for reverently looking after the bodies of children of the church until the final resurrection, whose souls rest with God in heaven if so judged. And hence the bodies of the excommunicated, of whom it is presumed by the church in foro exteriori that their souls are separated from the church triumphant, are not buried in the cemetery. Therefore [1], since the church supposes that the soul of the aforesaid child is damned, its body ought not to be buried in the cemetery, particularly because it was never a member of the church via the sacrament of regeneration[2].
