Sola scriptura

Christian theological doctrine that scriptures are the sole source of authority for faith and practice

Sola scriptura (Latin for "by scripture alone") means "the Bible alone ." Protestant Christians who subscribe to the doctrine of Sola scriptura belive that the Bible is the most important authority to the Christian faith, rather than Catholic or Eastern Orthodox Christians who believe that tradition and early church writings have equal authority with the Bible.

Sola scriptura was a principle of Martin Luther's Protestant Reformation and is a principle of Protestants today (see five solas).
