Chapter Summary

Epigraphic and literary evidence seems to suggest that Montanism survived in Greek-speaking immigrant centers just outside of the Aurelian walls of Rome, long after it was rooted out of Rome's mainstream Christian communities. This chapter focuses on some preliminary questions concerning the sources available, and the historical and methodological framework, in order to show the vulnerability of any attempt at answering most questions about early Montanism. It then addresses the role of Johannine traditions played in the early phase of the Montanist movement. We know from Hippolytus' Refutatio 8.19.1 that the new prophets and prophetesses produced writings but these did all perish with the movement itself. The exception is several treatises written by Tertullian during his Montanist period.

Keywords: Johannine; Montanism; Tertullian
