[Salvard, or Salvart (Jean-François, editor)]

An Harmony of the Confessions of the Faith of the Christian and Reformed Churches,

which purelie professe the holy doctrine of the Gospell in all the chiefe kingdomes, nations, and prouinces of Europe: the catologue and order whereof the pages following will declare. There are added in the ende verie shorte notes: in which both the obscure thinges are made plaine, & those thinges which maie in shew seeme to be contrarie each to other, are plainelie and verie modestlie reconciled, and if anie points doe as yet hang in doubt, they are sincerelie pointed at. All which things, in the name of the Churches of Fraunce and Belgia, are submitted to the free and discrete iudgement of all other Churches. Newlie translated out of Latine into English. Also in the end is added the confession of the Church of Scotland. Alowed by publique authoritie. [With notes by Simon Goulart.]

Publication Details: [Cambridge:] Imprinted by Thomas Thomas printer to the Vniuersitie of Cambridge, 1586

Notes: A translation of: Harmonia confessionum fidei orthodoxarum & reformatarum ecclesiarum, edited by Salvart and published in 1581. The Scottish Confession at the end, having a separate register, is sometimes wanting, although called for on the title-page. The Scots Confession was drawn up by six Johns, John Winram, John Spottiswoode, John Willock, John Douglas, John Row, with John Knox as the superintendent: the last usually gets the credit for the work.
