Lemma 15.14.5. Let $A$ be a normal domain. Then $A$ is absolutely integrally closed if and only if its fraction field is algebraically closed.

Proof. Observe that a field is algebraically closed if and only if it is absolutely integrally closed as a ring. Hence the lemma follows from Lemmas 15.14.3 and 15.14.4. $\square$
