The Articles of Religion

These are a classic statement of Life and Faith, “agreed upon by the Archbishops, Bishops, and the whole clergy of the Provinces of Canterbury and York, London, 1562”.

 

They are accepted by the Latimer Fellowship. Download the Thirty Nine Articles, or read them on the Latimer website.
