In this article the Middle Dutch text of a complete manuscript (Ms. Gent, Universiteitsbibliotheek, 1371) is edited. It contains two confession formulas, separated by a compilation of a short catechetical text which may be helpful for the confession. Most texts constituting the genre of confession formulas are preserved in only one manuscript and in this respect they are unique. The edition of these two hitherto unedited two confession formulas is desirable because they are elaborate and are not easy to understand without grammatical explanations.
