Long out of print and still much sought after. Over 900 pages, Shedd notes that his work "pays more attention to the orthodox than to the latitudinarian drift of thought." Also that "[i]t is impossible for any one author to compose an encyclopaedic history. Every work of this kind must be stronger in some directions, than in others." With this in mind he continues, writing, "I have felt a profound interest in the Nicene Trinitarianism, the Augustinian anthropology, and the Anselmic soteriology, and from these centres have taken my departures." Major sections deal with the history of philosophy, apologetics, Trinitarianism, Christology, anthropology, soteriology, eschatology and symbols (i.e confessions: including those from the Lutheran, Reformed, Papal, Greek, Arminian and Socinian systems of thought). A very important set of books!
