an English Version with Introduction and Commentary by Alistair Stewart-Sykes

Number 22 of Popular Patristics Series

Apostolic Tradition is an example of the genre known as ‘Church-order literature.’ It contains instructions and regulations for the life of the church dealing with ordinations, the offering of the eucharist and other community meals, the catechumenate and baptism, and the offering of prayer and individual study. No church-order deals with precisely the same material, some being more concerned with the conduct of individual Christians as a result of the expansion of catechetical material, but this is the typical ground covered by the genre. Conventionally, Apostolic Tradition has been attributed to a third century figure called Hippolytus of Rome.”
