The Catechism of Pierre Viret, a brief explanation of the main doctrines of the Christian Faith, was written by the Swiss Reformer Pierre Viret during the time of his pastorate in Lausanne. The Scriptures accompanying the topics under discussion both give a deeper understanding of the material covered and provide ample passages for memorization in order that each doctrine may be truly grasped and comprehended.

First published in June of 1558, Viret's catechism was only nine months old when its author was banished from his church in Lausanne and the Pays de Vaud and forced to flee to the neighboring city of Geneva for refuge. There Viret republished his catechism, where the work (combined with other writings) underwent several editions throughout the 1560's, and was first translated into English in 1573.
