Articles 1-3 (pt. 2)
Sep 27, 2020 • Fr. Karl Griswold-Kuhn
The Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion together with prayerbook are the defining statements of Anglican doctrine. They were issued by the Convocation of clergy of the Church of England in 1571 and are printed in the Book of Common Prayer and other Anglican prayer books. From 1673 to 1828, the Test Act made adherence to the Thirty-Nine Articles a requirement for holding civil office in England.The Articles highlight some of the major differences between Anglican and Catholic doctrine, as well as more protestant positions. We will spend several weeks examining this wonderful and comprehensive document of our faith.
