Chapter Summary

This chapter is divided into two parts. The first part traces the influence of the Two Ways in the early church. It is of importance to know whether the indirect Christian tradition attests to the diffusion of the original Greek document and/or of its Latin translation. The chapter analyzes the following question: Are there quotations and testimonies of church fathers and of other Christian writings available evidencing an independent Two Ways tradition? The chapter's concern, however, is with the function of the Two Ways manual in its first Christian setting. The second part of the chapter investigates the influence of the Two Ways manual on the Latin church literature dating from later (Merovingian and Carolingian) periods. The evidence surveyed shows that the Merovingian and Carolingian documents in their own order and in their own way reproduce features of a Two Ways tradition.

Keywords: Carolingian period; Christian literature; Greek document; Latin church literature; Merovingian period; Two Ways
