Manifesto

A manifesto is a written public declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government.[1][2][3] It often is political in nature, but may present an individual's life stance. Manifestos relating to religious belief are generally referred to as creeds.

Etymology

Manifesto is derived from the Italian word manifesto, itself derived from the Latin manifestum, meaning clear or conspicuous. Its first recorded use in English is from 1620, in Nathaniel Brent's translation of Paolo Sarpi's History of the Council of Trent: "To this citation he made answer by a Manifesto" (p. 102). Similarly, "They were so farre surprised with his Manifesto, that they would never suffer it to be published" (p. 103)[4]
