1 Authorized Report of the Meetings in Defence of the Athanasian Creed
Authorized Report of the Meetings in Defence of the Athanasian Creed which were Held in St. James's Hall and in the Hanover Square Rooms on January 31, 1873. With an Explanatory Preface. Second Edition. London: Rivingtons, Waterloo Place. High Street Oxford, Trinity Street Cambridge. 1893. Octavo, 133.6 x 20.8cm. Pamphlet in gray wrapper with title also on wrapper, front cover strengthened at edges & rehinged with archival paper, damp stain on outer margins of upper half of pages, light tanning of pages.

Last page reads: London: Printed by William Clowes and Sons, Duke Street, Stamford Street, and Charing Cross. This meeting and pamphlet came about because "It was announced early in 1872, that the Bishops of the Province of Canterbury would invite the Lower House of that Province to consider what method of dealing with the Athanasian Creed would tend to remove the difficulties which it was alleged were occasioned by its present use in the Service of the Church of England; a Committee of Clergy and Laity was therefore organized by the exertions of a few Laymen, and the following circular was issued to all the Parochial Clergy of England and Wales. 'Reverend Sir, We, the undersigned, beg leave to urge upon you very seriously the importance and necessity of obtaining the signatures of your parishioners to a petition, headed by yourself, to the Lower House of Convocation of Canterbury... in favour of maintaining the Athanasian Creed in its integrity in the Public Service of the Church." They ended up obtaining 38,000 signatures in favour of keeping the creed.

I quote Philip Schaff who describes this work and gives a summary of its contents. Schaff lists it as the second work (after the Harmonia Confesssion Fidei Orthodixarum, et Reformatarum Ecclesiarum) under the headings: The Reformed Confessions; Literature; I. Collections of Reformed Symbols, in his Creeds of Christendom, I:354-55. "The first edition of this rare and valuable book was probably compiled by Gaspar Laurentius, who is not named on the title-page, but who signs himself in the dedicatory Epistle to Elector Frederick III. of the Palatinate, before the 'Orthodox Consensus' (in Part III.), and says, in the 'General Preface,' that he edited this Consensus a. 1595, and now (1612) in a much improved form. His object was the same as that of the Harmony, viz., to show the essential unity of the evangelical faith in the multiplicity and variety of Confessions which, as the Preface says, in the absence of conspiracy, only strengthen the harmony, and mutually illustrate and supplement each other, like many orthodox expositions of the Scriptures. The second edition, of which I have a copy, is a large quarto volume, consisting of three main parts, the several documents being paged separately. It contains the principal Reformed Confessions down to the Synod of Dort, three Lutheran Confessions, and several other documents, as follows: 1. The Harmonia sive Concordantia Confessionum Fidei per (xiii.) Articulos digesta, with the Symbolum Apostolicum, as the basis of a general consensus, supported by Scripture texts and references to the various Confessions of the collection (8 pp.); 2. Confessio Helvetica posterior, reprinted from a Zurich edition of 1651: 3. Confessio Helvetica prior (or Basileensis II.), 1536; 4. Confessio Basileensis I. (or Mylhusiana), 1532; 5. Confessio Gallica, from the Latin edition of 1566; 6. Confessio Anglicana, 1562; 7. Confessio Scotica of 1560, and the second of 1580; 8. Confessio Ecclesiarum Belgicarum, 1559; 9. Confessio Czengerina, the Hungarian Confession, 1570; 10. Confessio Polonica, or Consensus Poloniæ (Sendomirensis) 1570; 11. Confessio Argentinensis S. Tetrapolitana, 1531; 12. Confessio Angustana, from the Wittenberg edition of 1540; 13. Confessio Saxonica, s. Misnica, 1551; 14. Confessio Wirtembergica, 1552; 15. Confessio Illustrissimi Electoris Palatini, Friderici III., 1576; 16. Confessio Bohemica (the first of the two Bohemian Confessions, which was presented to King Ferdinand in 1535. It contains a Preface by Luther. The second was compiled 1575); 17. Consensus Ecclesiarum Majoris el Minoris Poloniæ, Lithuaniæ, etc., 1583. Appended: Acta et Conclusiones Synodi Generalis Thoruniensis; 18. Articuli Confessionis Basileensis of the year 1647; 19. Canones Synodi Dordrechtanæ, 1619; 20. Confessio Cyrilli Patriarchæ Constantinop., 1631; 21. Catholicus Consensus, viz., A Harmony of Christian Doctrine, compiled from the Scriptures and the writings of the Fathers, under the following heads: (a) On the Word of God as the Rule of Faith; (b) On God, the Trinitarian and Christological Doctrines; (c) On Divine Providence; (d) On the Head of the Church; (e) On Justification; (f) On Free Will, Original Sin, Election and Predestination; (g) On the Sacraments; (h) On Idolatry, the Worship of Images, etc.; (i) On the True Way of Worshiping and Serving God; (k) On the Church and the Ministry; (l) Resurrection and the Future State."

4 WATERLAND, DANIEL Creeds the Glory and Safeguard of the Church. An Introduction to
New York 
WATERLAND, DANIEL. The Creeds the Glory and Safeguard of the Church. An Introduction to the Athanasian Creed, with a Comment, in Great Measure Drawn from Dr. Waterland. [small oval woodcut device] Depository, 20 John Street, New York. No. 201, P.18. 12mo, 11.5 x 18.5cm. Pamphlet in original green paper printed wrapper, small strip of archival paper pasted on inside of wrapper at top and bottom, pages lightly tanning, top half of all pages with light damp stain. Pagination: (1) title, (1) quotes Keble & Augustine, [3]-4 introduction, [5]-16 Commentary on...the Athanasian Creed. OCLC locates only the Columbia University copy. Daniel Waterland (1682-83-1740) English theologian and apologist. "His significance lies in his defense of trinitarian orthodoxy against Samuel Clarke and Daniel Whitby, and in his check upon the advance of latitudinarianism with the Church of England... He was a prolific author... In all of these there appear a learning which is deep and accurate, a style terse and vigorous, and an opposition to mysticism and philosophy which compelled him to have recourse to external evidences for his apologetics."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. XII:276. I offer this tract published by the Protestant Episcopal Tract Society, giving the text of the Athanasian Creed with Waterland's commentary.
