Succession und tradition in Antiquity and Early Christianity
This article focusses on the concepts which today are known as ‘succession’ and ‘apostolic tradition’. It investigates the meaning and reference of these concepts within the context of textual evidences from Antiquity and Early Christianity. From this historical perpective, the article aims at arguing that both concepts should primarily be understood within a judicial and political realm and not merely as theological ideas.
