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.
