"First published in 1943 in the World's Classics, this book won for itself a world-wide reputation. The first edition covered the period of the Fathers, the Church in the Roman Empire, the Creeds, Scholasticism, the Reformation, the Anglican Establishment and the Dissenters, Roman Catholic pronouncements, etc. down to the present century. The second edition is enlarged to include additional documents on the Independents (1658), Catholic social policy (1891, 1931, and 1961), the dogma of the Assumption (1950), Anglican Orders (1897), the Church of Scotland (1921), and particularly on the Church of South India (1947) and the World Council of Churches (1948 and 1961)."
Book in very good condition, although there is a small inscription on the first page.
