The Apostles' Creed (Date Unknown)
According to legend, the Apostles' Creed was written by the twelve apostles on the tenth day after Jesus' ascension, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The legend was effectively exposed by Lorenzo Valla and later scholars. However, all of the tenets expressed in this short credo are found in the theological formulas known to have existed around 100 AD. Scholars have determined this formula likely developed around Rome at the end of the second century.
