Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition
Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition is a 3,800 page multi-volume
reference work compiled and edited by Dr. Jaroslav Pelikan and Valerie Hotchkiss.
It also includes a companion volume, Credo, by Dr. Pelikan. The complete work
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 comparative index prepared
by Pelikan serves as a comprehensive guide, doctrine by doctrine, to all the creeds
and confessions. A CD-ROM, which contains all the translated texts in their original
languages, is also included. It is the only source available in any language for the
entire creedal confessional body of Orthodox teaching in one place.
Funded the distribution of this work to every
Orthodox Christian theological seminary in the world and to other
seminaries in the developing world - a total of about 300 schools.
