Lemma 68.16.6. In Situation 68.16.1 the morphism $p : X \to \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A)$ is separated.

**Proof.**
By Decent Spaces, Lemma 67.9.2 we can find a scheme $Y$ and a surjective integral morphism $Y \to X$. Since an integral morphism is affine, we can apply Lemma 68.16.3 to see that $H^1(Y, \mathcal{G}) = 0$ for every quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ Y$-module $\mathcal{G}$. Since $Y \to X$ is quasi-compact and $X$ is quasi-compact, we see that $Y$ is quasi-compact. Since $Y$ is a scheme, we may apply Cohomology of Schemes, Lemma 30.3.1 to see that $Y$ is affine. Hence $Y$ is separated. Note that an integral morphism is affine and universally closed, see Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 66.45.7. By Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 66.9.8 we see that $X$ is a separated algebraic space.
