They are relatively conservative in the doctrines they assert, retaining a belief in purgatory and the sacrament of confession, as well as asserting the Real Presence in the Eucharist, and preserving the Latin Mass.14563 The Ten Articles are presented to Parliament 2 Historical context notes are intended to give basic and preliminary information on a topic.
