Beginning sometime in July of 1529,[1] Philipp Melanchthon, along with Martin Luther and probably Justus Jonas, wrote the so-called Articles of Schwabach (so named because they were presented at the Convention of Schwabach on 16 October of the same year),[2] as a confession of faith with other Wittenberg theologians. Material from this document was later incorporated into the Augsburg Confession written by Philipp Melancthon in 1530[3]
