Chapter Summary

The description of the temple vessels, the cataloguing of them as they actually existed at a given moment or as they were believed to have existed at some particular point of importance, provides an indication not simply of practice but also of order, the continuing order which is traced back into the past and which provides authentication for the present. This chapter considers some aspects of this more descriptive material. It then focuses on how the temple vessels appear as a theme concerned with the establishment of continuity across a break in the tradition. The chapter notes some of the indications which are to be found in still later writings of the persistence of this same theme, to bridge other moments of discontinuity or to establish authority for the beliefs and practices of later generations.

Keywords: continuity theme; temple vessels
