Papers of the Faith & Order Commission


The Commission on Faith and Order undertakes theological studies so that the churches may reach sufficient agreement across their diversity and grow in mutual care and accountability. First launched as a movement in 1910, it became a commission of the World Council of Churches in 1948. Its more than 300 publications, “The Faith and Order Papers”, constitute today a unique century-old collection that documents not only progress in modern ecumenical theology but also the circumstances in which this progress has taken place. They give access not only to final reports of studies or of world conferences, but also to detailed records of plans and the implementation of plans that led to those results and to the documentation about the churches’ movement from separation to reunion.
