In 1876, this three volume collection of cross-denominational creeds and confessions was deemed by its publisher a symbolical library well worth visiting. In Volume II of Creeds of Christendom, Schaff reproduces the Scripture Confessions as well as the Ante-Nicene and Nicene Rules of Faith and Baptismal Creeds. He also presents the Orthodox Confession of the Eastern Church alongside the longer catechism of the Orthodox Eastern Church. Finally, Schaff concludes with the Old Catholic Union Creeds. Schaff spends several sections comparing different forms of the Apostle's Creed. Schaff even provides an extensive table displaying the gradual formation of the Creed from 200AD to 750AD. This book is an excellent resource for comparative analysis, as Schaff provides the documents in their original languages alongside their English translations. Through Creeds of Christendom, Schaff aims to bring understanding to those who adhere to different creeds. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer
