The Schleitheim Confession

The Schleitheim Confession (also known as the Brüderliche Vereinigung or the Schleitheim Brotherly Union) has come to be recognized as a watershed articulation of certain Swiss Anabaptist distinctives. Michael Sattler is now accepted as being the primary author of the seven articles. These were ratified on Feb. 24, 1527 during an assembly of Anabaptists in the northern Swiss village of Schleitheim (from 'Schleitheim Confession' in the Canadian Mennonite Encyclopedia).
