A Treatise on the History of Confession : Until it Developed into Auricular Confession AD 1215 Paperback / softback
First published in 1901, this book traces the development of the Sacrament of Confession from the earliest days of Christianity to 1215, when public penance and confession was replaced by the more intimate Auricular format.
The text is rigorously annotated with citations from the original sources and in the original languages.
Although written primarily for Anglican clergymen, this book will be of value to anyone interested in the implementation and evolution of Sacraments and in Church history more generally.
