Heidegger's Bible Handbook: NT Apocrypha: The Apostles' Creed

But in like manner Ruffinus, Ambrose, Jerome, and more recent men, especially the Papists, attempt to claim the Symbol, vulgarly called Apostolic, for all the Apostles as authors. But, although we do not deny that an Apostolic epitome and marrow is contained in the Symbol; the most learned Men, Vossius especially, Ussher, and a great many others, with weighty arguments deny that that structure and composition owes its origin to the Apostles. And with many arguments we have asserted that very thing in Monograph, which is in Dissertationibus Selectis, Tome II, pages 627, etc., and the thing said there we will not repeat here.
