    Articles agreed on by the Bishops and other learned men in the Synod at London, in the year of our Lord God, 1552, for the avoiding of controversy in opinions and the establishment of a Godly concord in certain matters of religion.

    Feel free to call me out on any eccentricities or inconsistencies here.

    Very interesting. There are several passages which are somewhat more explicitly Lutheran than what is found in the 39 Articles.

    Which ones and in what way? I haven't gotten around to really digging into them.

    I will reply to you in depth in the next couple of days Potter. But the first that stood out was the article on what Lutherans would term the 'regular call.'

    I thought it was interesting that these articles explicitly reject universal reconciliation, something that was walked back and removed from the later 39.

    @PotterMcKinney Thank you. Rather than moving this into the Contributor area this will just be left out here for all to read until such a time as we get around to putting it on the site. Your effort and time have been appreciated.

    @PotterMcKinney could you post as a PDF? I can't open the file as is. Thanks!

    Yes, I can create a PDF.

    I think it is prudent to also say exactly what changes I made to the source material:

    1. Spelling changes, obviously
    2. Punctuation, usually stray and unnecessary commas
    3. MINOR wording changes, usually regarding conjunctions at the beginning of sentences and smaller words whose purpose in the sentence has either changed or become redundant in present-day English.

    I am stilling working on a comparison of the two sets of Articles. It has turned into an interesting study but I will finish up soon.
