As you are reading the Augsburg Confession and the Apology to the Augsburg Confession, you will see to the right "Confession-Confutation-Defense". This is a reference to the Augsburg Confession, the Roman Catholic reply, called the "Confutation" and then the Defense, which is the Lutheran Apology, or Defense, of the Augsburg Confession. We have provided a method to read each article of the confession, view the Roman response in the Confutation, then view the associated article in the Defense. Note that the Confutation is NOT in the Book of Concord, but is a document written by the Roman Church in response to the presentation of the Augsburg Confession.
