About the Cyclopedia

Catalog of Testimonies

(Catalogus Testimoniorum; Vorzeichnüs der Zeugnissen). Scripture passages and quotations from ch. fathers on the person of Christ, esp. the genus maiestaticum, added as an appendix, but not as material subscribed, to the Book* of Concord. Written by Jakob Andreä* and M. Chemnitz* and added at suggestion made by Chemnitz January 1580 to forestall charges that the FC in the article on the person of Christ introduced “strange, self-invented phrases and dangerous modi loquendi.”
