Act of 1648 – Act anent Approbation of Larger Catechism. 20th July 1648

The General Assembly, having exactly examined and seriously considered the Larger Catechism agreed upon by the Assembly of Divines sitting at Westminster, with assistance of Commissioners from this Kirk, copies thereof being printed and sent to Presbyteries for the more exact trial thereof, and public intimation being frequently made in this Assembly, that every one that had any doubts or objections upon it might put them in; do find, upon due examination thereof, that the said Catechism is agreeable to the Word of God, and in nothing contrary to the received doctrine, worship, discipline, and government of this Kirk a necessary part of the intended uniformity in religion, and a rich treasure for increasing knowledge among the people of God; and, therefore, the Assembly, as they bless the Lord that so excellent a Catechism is prepared, so they approve the same as a part of uniformity; agreeing, for their part, that it be a Common Catechism for the three kingdoms, and a Directory for catechising such as have made some proficiency in the knowledge of the grounds of religion.
