Excerpt from To the Memory of Paul Caspari

It is too often taken for granted that the trend of modem criticism is destructive of the ancient literal acceptation of the Creed which we revere as the faith of our fathers, and as the faith which we ourselves confess in our daily prayers. We have been accustomed to call it "The Apostles' Creed" because we believed that it truly represented the substance of Apostolic teaching, though we did not argue that the Apostles wrote it in so many words. But the undisputed fact that, in the course of its long history the form has received certain additions, has led men to question whether the enlarged form set the old faith in a new light, or whether its value had vanished with its ancient simplicity.
