Ablution of the Head

Resource Toolbox

(captilavium) was a Spanish rite adopted in France. It took place on Palm Sunday, the Sunday of Indulgence, out of respect to the sacred chrism with which the catechumens were anointed on the solemn day of baptism. At the Council of Mayence, in 818, the practice was abolished, and baptism was required to be celebrated after the Roman manner.
