BRANDENBURG, Confession of, a confession of faith issued in 1614 by the Elector of Brandenburg. It was an attempt to reconcile the religious controversies growing out of the differences in Lutheran and Calvinistic doctrine. It had authority in the churches of Brandenburg until the union of the Lutheran and Reformed churches in 1817.
