A comprehensive source book on authentic Catholic dogma. English translation of Father Heinrich Denzinger's Enchiridion Symbolorum et Definitionum. First published a century and a half ago. Handbook of articles of faith and morals since the pontificate of Blessed Pope Pius IX. The Enchiridion has been updated periodically; this edition was issued in 1957. Includes all articles and creeds of the Catholic Faith beginning with the twelve apostles, all dogmatic definitions stamped with the authority of the Apostolic See (ex cathedra), decrees of the solemn magisterium, papal bulls, encyclicals and letters, as well as some of the more weighty decisions of the Holy Office prior to 1957. Although not every entry is definitional (i.e. ex cathedra) it still should be considered the "locutus est" for every wayfaring Roman Catholic. Inlcudes both general and scriptural index as well as a topical index for very easy reference. Note, too, this edition comes with a one page Corrigenda which is a list of 16 corrections that must be applied to editorial errors (usually omissions) found in previous editions.
