Early Church: Sacraments

In honor of the passing of the Bishop of Rome, let's shift away from the great schism for now (we should return later to have BGM respond regarding succession) and study the sacraments. This study will necessarily involve both history and scripture.

1. Besides Baptism and the Eucharist, when were the other 5 sacraments instituted?

2. Do the sacraments effectuate grace or are they mere symbols as Luther posited?
