Summary of the Book 'A Declaration Of The Causes':

A playne and godly Exposytion or Declaration of the Commune Crede is a 1533 work of religious commentary by Desiderius Erasmus written at the request of Thomas Boleyn 1st Earl of Wiltshire and dealing with the Apostles Creed from a Roman Catholic point of view. It was written in part as a result of the dispute between Erasmus and Martin Luther on certain aspects of the nature of the Catholic Creed. The Exposytion of the Commune Creed was published as an English translation of Erasmuss original text. It carried the subtitle A Dialog called the Symbole or instructyon in the christen fayth or belyue made by Mayster Erasmus of Roterdame. The persones speakynge are the Mayster and the Disciple the one is marked by M the other by D. In effect it is a question-and-answer dialog between a disciple wishing to be ascrybed and receiued into the company and feloshype of the catholyke churche and a master on the common creed necessary. It therefore represents the catechism of Erasmus on the Catholic creed at the time of its writing which was three years before to his death in 1536.
