Product Description

In the years following its discovery, the ancient text known as The Apostolic Tradition was attributed to the third century writer, Hippolytus. There were however some problems in the conclusive determination of this authorship. Stewart-Sykes in On the Apostolic Tradition comments upon the complex history of the text and offers a rational solution to the problem of authorship. Sykes highlights formerly obscure passages and brings together the most recent research on the earliest known Roman Church, using these to offer a well-grounded conclusion on the Hippolytan debate. Contains both the text of The Apostolic Tradition and Stewart-Sykes' commentary.
