The Orthodox Confession of the Catholic and Apostolic Eastern Church


Thomas Baker 1898

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Orthodox confession of Peter Mogila was written in 1645 as a defense of the Orthodox Christian faith against the influence of both Jesuits and Protestants in Polish-dominated parts of Old Rus. His most well-known and celebrated writing, it serves as one of the most important Orthodox theological works of the seventeenth century. In 1642, the catechism was approved by the Council of Jassy in Romania, and the patriarchs of Constantinople, Alexandria, Jerusalem, and Antioch approved it two years later. The 1672 Synod of Jerusalem, convened by Dositheus II, adopted his catechism as the standard catechism for the Orthodox Church.

About Peter Mogila

Peter Mogila was the metropolitan of Kiev and Galicia from 1632 to 1646. He made extensive contributions to the improvement of clerical education for Orthodox Christians in the seventeenth century in Kiev, founding the Kiev-Mogila Academy, where classes were given primarily in Latin, but also in Russian and Greek. He was the leader of the Orthodox Church of Old Rus during Polish rule, and helped preserve the Orthodox Church in that country following the defection of a sizable number of Orthodox churches to Rome in 1596.
