THE APOSTOLIC TRADITION OF HIPPOLYTUS By BURTON SCOTT EASTON

Apostolic Tradition, as this text is best known, was identified in the early twentieth century as the work of Hippolytus, a Christian leader from third-century Rome.

The text provides liturgical information of great antiquity, and as such has been massively influential on liturgical study and reform, especially in western churches.

The attribution to Hippolytus has never been universally accepted; much of the text remained obscure, published without commentary; finally, no adequate English version has been published since 1937.




Alistair Stewart-Sykes is a leading scholar of Christian liturgical origins. The author of numerous books on early Christianity and its liturgy, he is a vicar in the Diocese of Oxford, England.
