“In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”
In necessariis unitas, in dubiis libertas, in omnibus caritas commonly translated as "unity in necessary things; freedom in doubtful things; love in all things" or more literally as "in necessary things unity; in uncertain things liberty; in all things charity" is a Latin phrase. It is often misattributed to St. Augustine of Hippo , but seems to have been first used in by Archbishop of Split Spalato Marco Antonio de Dominis in his anti-Papal De Repubblica Ecclesiastica ,  where it appears in context as follows emphasis added :. Quod si in ipsa radice, hoc est sede, vel potius solio Romani pontificis haec abominationis lues purgaretur et ex communi ecclesiae consilio consensuque auferretur hic metus, depressa scilicet hac petra scandali ac ad normae canonicae iustitiam complanata, haberemus ecclesiae atrium aequabile levigatum ac pulcherrimis sanctuarii gemmis splendidissimum. Omnesque mutuam amplecteremur unitatem in necessariis, in non necessariis libertatem, in omnibus caritatem. Ita sentio, ita opto, ita plane spero, in eo qui est spes nostra et non confundemur.
[In a word, I'll say it: if we preserve unity in essentials, liberty in non-essentials, and charity in both, our affairs will be in the best position.] The same sentiment.

The Origin of the Peace Formula. Peter Meiderlin  About Moravian Motto . It is from The One Thing Needful Unum necessarium , …Comenius appears once more what he really had been throughout his life—a simple believer, a mystic, to whom union with Christ was his all in all. Version attributed to Augustine: In essentials unity, In doubtful things liberty, But in all things love. But the common saying, expressed in various ways and attributed to various authors, must be recalled with approval: in essentials, unity; in doubtful matters, liberty; in all things, charity.
Often attributed to great theologians such as Augustine, it comes from an otherwise undistinguished German Lutheran theologian of the early seventeenth century, Rupertus Meldenius. The phrase occurs in a tract on Christian unity written circa during the Thirty Years War — , a bloody time in European history in which religious tensions played a significant role. The saying has found great favor among subsequent writers such as Richard Baxter, and has since been adopted as a motto by the Moravian Church of North America and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Those who are united by faith in Christ are thereby united to one another in the church, the body of Christ. We call this union the communion of saints. Because it is a union created by Christ in baptizing us all by one Spirit into His body, the church 1 Cor. But the manifestation of that unity is not always apparent.
