Apostlesʹ Creed (The)

.

A church creed supposed to be an epitome of Scripture doctrines, or doctrines taught by the apostles. It was received into the Latin Church, in its present form, in the eleventh century; but a formula somewhat like it existed in the second century. Items were added in the fourth and fifth centuries, and verbal alterations much later.

⁂ It is said that Tullo, Bishop of Antioch, introduced the Creed as part of the daily service in 471.
