The Westminster Confession (1646), Larger and Shorter Catechisms (1647)

Westminster Confession

A brief discussion of The Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms, important later works in the Protestant Reformation:

In 1646 and 1647, maybe the most important and most influential Reformed confessions and catechisms ever were written, β€œThe Westminster Confession” and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. They were composed to reform the Church of England to be more Calvinistic and to unite the church in Scotland, Ireland, and Britain.[1]
