Abstract This paper addresses scholarly approaches to the function of allusions and intertextuality in the Martyrdom of Polycarp. It argues that scholarship on this question has operated with and been hampered by unspoken assumptions about the historicity and authenticity of the account, the development of canon, the use of scriptural sources, and the function of allusions. Attention to the function of intertextuality in the account reveals both that it is difficult to identify concretely the sources of the account and that, as a result, it is impossible to speak authoritatively about the author’s intent with respect to the use of these sources.
