9780300093919: Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition (4 Volumes with CD-ROM)

This remarkable four-volume set assembles the principal creeds and confessions of the Christian Church, from biblical times to the present and from all over the globe, and places them in their historical and theological context. An introductory volume, Credo, by eminent church historian Jaroslav Pelikan, surveys the history of these creeds, delves into the meaning and purpose of creeds, and probes the issues and controversies that spawn new creeds, as well as the origins of new religious movements within Christianity.

The set includes over 225 texts, with translations from many languages. Pelikan and Hotchkiss provide a brief introduction to each creed and confession, as well as commentary and notes identifying its biblical and other sources. A massive and unique comparative index serves as a comprehensive guide, doctrine by doctrine, to all the creeds and confessions. And a CD-ROM, which contains all the translated texts in their original languages, is also included.

About the Author:

Jaroslav Pelikan is Sterling Professor Emeritus of History at Yale University and was the first John W. Kluge Scholar at the Library of Congress. He is the recipient of many awards and prizes and is the author of numerous books, including The Christian Tradition in five volumes, Jesus Through the Centuries, Christianity and Classical Culture, and The Vindication of Tradition. Valerie Hotchkiss is Professor of Medieval Studies at Southern Methodist University and J. S. Bridwell Foundation Endowed Librarian and Director of Bridwell Library. Her books include Clothes Make the Man: Female Transvestism in Medieval Europe and, with Jaroslav Pelikan and David Price, The Reformation of the Bible/The Bible of the Reformation, published by Yale University Press.

Review:

"One of the indispensable works of reference for any theological scholar."

"This magisterial collection of creedal and confessional statements from various Christian churches and communities is a major academic achievement and responds to the need felt by many for a kind of Enchiridion Symbolorum. It promises to be of great value to scholars and nonspecialists alike."

"What Philip Schaff's Creeds of Christendom has given to scholars for the past 125 years, the new Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition will provide into the foreseeable future; and it will do so in an enhanced fashion, thanks to technical innovations and greater comprehensiveness."
