Abstract

The Lutheran church is a confessional church. It has always accepted the three ecumenical creeds. Further, since the early years of the Reformation its faith and life have been defined and bound by confessions specific to its own history and faith context. In this later sense the Lutheran church has been a confessional church since the presentation of the Augsburg Confession to Emperor Charles V on 25 June 1530. Other writings soon joined the CA as public statements of faith of the Lutheran church, namely the Apology of the Augsburg Confession (1531), the Schmalkald Articles (1537), Melanchthon's Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope (1537), the Small and Large Catechisms (1529), and the Formula of Concord (1577).
