Apostles' Creed
« on: May 02, 2010, 08:33:50 PM »
Can anyone give me a brief summary of the Apostles' Creed used in the Latin West? I have heard that some scholars say that it is pre/proto-Nicene, and was used in the basic outline of the Nicene Creed. I have also heard that it is a shorthand version of the Nicene Creed which became popular over time. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks!

There is no conection between the two, except that they were both confessions used for baptism, the Apostles at Rome, the Nicene, or the core of what could become the Nicene, at Caesarea in Palestine.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

It is employed, traditionally, at services other than the Mass, where the Nicene creed is used. In the traditional Benedictine office, it is used, IIRC, at Compline and Prime (1st hour).

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.
