The Small Catechism of Martin Luther, as it has come down to us, includes a couple of sections which for various reasons are not included in the Small Catechism as it was published in the Book of Concord, and therefore I have found it very difficult to find the Latin texts of those parts. They are the following:
1. The three questions on The Office of the Keys:
What is the Office of the Keys?
Where is this written?
What do you believe according to these words?2. The Christian Questions With Their Answers (for those who intend to go to the Sacrament)
Obviously, these texts in English come down to our use in the Missouri Synod most directly from their German antecedents. My hypothesis is that both of them also were in Latin use in the 16th and 17th centuries. And I want to find them. If anyone can help, I would be grateful.
