This compendium of the documents which define the Christian faith, as understood by Catholics, includes the creeds of the Church from the earliest times, along with major extracts from all the important decrees and declarations of councils, popes and Vatican congregations touching on matters of faith updated to 1989. All these documents have been organized in chronological order under themes, each with an introduction and outline, so that developments in teaching the faith, and the concerns of theology and authority at various periods in the history of the Church, become apparent. This book should appeal to students of Church history and theology.
