standard of doctrine" of the Anglican
Church of Australia.
They form the basis of the Articles of the
Episcopal Church of America
and the Twenty-five Articles of the
The articles were issued in both English and Latin, and are of
equal authority. The Latin is therefore included as it may
sometimes serve as a guide to when the English is unclear.
If I have the time, at some time in the future
I hope to add a short history of the articles.
