Of the Church in General: The Lutheran View, Romish, Reformed by Guericke and Krauth [Journal Article]


“The translation we offer from Guericke presents a comparative view of the doctrines of the various Christian denominations on that subject, which, more than any other, engages the attention of the theological world at present. We have given a literal version, but have disentangled the sentences, and broken them up into parts of moderate length. We have thrown the illustrations into the text, instead of ranging them below it, as in the original. We have also translated the quotations from the Latin and Greek symbols.” — From the Translator, Charles Krauth.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate: Some subject matter knowledge helpful.
