My emendations are inclosed in brackets. The punctuation is adjusted to the liturgical use of this Creed. Ver. 1.—Some copies read opus habet for. Athanasian Creed in American English a 4th-5th cent. statement of Christian beliefs of unknown authorship, formerly attributed to Athanasius: as opposed to Arianism, it emphasizes faith in the Trinity.
