Source (Public Domain): Concordia Triglotta: The Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, ed. F. Bente (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1921). The excerpt from AC XXVI has been taken from Tappert’s English rendering of the German text, which more fully identifies the distinctive roles of husbands and wives than the Latin text that is the basis for Bente’s translation; moreover, it was the German, rather than the simultaneously produced Latin version, that was read before Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Augsburg. See The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, ed. Theodore G. Tappert (Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1959), 65. The full text of the Book of Concord is available at www.bookofconcord.org and much of it also is available at Project Wittenberg.
