This is official dogma declared and defined by the Highest Authorities of the Universal and Roman Aristotelian Church. Translation was made by His Eminence Cardinal-Archbishop of Rouen Sir Lescure, on the 23rd of February, 1454 in Rome.

Citation:
The Two Sources of the Faith

* Chapter One : The Divine Revelation. The two sources of the Faith.

The Most High, which has created humanity and all of nature from the action of His infinite Love, did not want that this humanity be abandoned to the darkness of misunderstanding. This is why Almighty God revealed Himself to us.
He revealed Himself first of all in the luminous doctrine and the teachings of Aristotle; doctrines whose harmony foretold prophetically of the Teaching of the Light to men and women by Christos.
The union of these two teachings gave rise to the Holy and Immutable Aristotelian Church.

* Chapter Two : The Harmony of Faith and Reason

We believe firmly that there is one Truth, and that the Revelation of Christos harmonizes with the wholesome intelligence of nature and the human heart which we observe in the Doctrine of Aristotle. Faith and Reason are like two facets of the same reality. This truth constitutes thus a single harmonious whole of great beauty, together, which is as a reflection of the sublime beauty of the harmonious union of the two guides of the Divine word. Through Aristotle, emblem of Reason, the poor in spirit learn science, and through Christos, messenger of Faith, the learned increase in wisdom and piety.
For the purity of the Faith depends on the purity of the ideas. And without Faith, the ideas are unavailing. The divine symmetry finds its basis there.

The study of philosophy and theology must be developed in this spirit, and the Theologians should be conscious that the beauty and purity of their belief will affect the image that the faithful have of the beauty of God.
Thus the Holy Books of the Revelation of Christos and those of the Revelation of the Logos written by Aristotle must be read in concert and mutually completed.

* Chapter Three : The Ideas in the Church

This balance and harmony of the Faith is found in the members of the Aristotelian Church: some, mystical in essence, seek the path of wisdom in imitation of Christos. Their ideas guide them in the spheres of the absolute, in direct contact with the Divine. For them, these ideas hold true:

1) The things are copies of the Ideas.
2) Sensible beauty is an image of eternal Beauty that the soul has already contemplated.
3) Happiness is a form of meditation, which the wise one must strive to attain.
4) Metaphysics is the science of first causes.

Others, trusting in Reason, have Aristotle as master and follow in his footsteps, understanding the truth through reasoning, and having the basis of Faith in the following ideas:

1) The essence of things is in the things themselves, and gives them form.
2) Beauty results from certain proportions, measurements, and harmonious rhythms.
3) The wise man must take part in the life of the city.
4) Metaphysics is the science of what is, as it is : being as being.

Every believer takes part more or less of these groups, but all work with a single heart to the glory of the Church and the love of God.

* Chapter Four : The Authority of Interpretation of the Church

The Holy and Immutable Aristotelian Church is alone qualified to interpret divine teachings. It is the Sovereign Pontiff through the Curia, and he alone (with or without consultation of the Bishops of the Aristotelian world) who determines the doctrine of the Church. However, he must guard the deposits of the Faith, and he will have to preserve it with care and respect, never changing the fundamentals in what his predecessors have instituted in the dogma. He will take care, as a good shepherd, of the maintenance of the unity of the Faith and the harmony of the believers.

Written in Rome, day before of Christmas, 1453
