After 1579 (and some failed attempts at writing a common Protestant Confession), it was decided that it would be a safer plan to compile a Harmony, in which the Protestant Confessions already extant could be distributed under certain heads, and by which all parties involved might be called back to agreement and any appearance of variation that existed might be discussed and explained. The design was accordingly entrusted to Theodore Beza (Calvin's student and successor in Geneva), Daneau, and Salnar. Twelve major Confessions, beginning with Augsburg (1530) through to The Confession of Scotland (1560), are catalogued according to topics (loosely ordered along the general lines of the headings found in the Westminster Confession) in this unique and massive volume. The Westminster Confession (1647), The Synod of Dort (1619), The Thirty-nine Articles of the Church of England (1571), and the Irish Articles of 1615, have all been appended to this work, increasing its value and making it the most comprehensive compilation and topically indexed reference tool available to creedal Christians today!
