Norma normata

(Lat. “the ruled rule”). Term applied to a Confession, or body of Confessions, as secondary norm (norma secundum quid; norma secondaria; norma discretionis), determined by the norma* normans. The norma normata is only relatively necessary. It decides whether a person has clearly understood the true doctrines of Scripture.
