image of Vigiliae Christianae

The anti-Montanist notice of Pseudo-Hippolytus, Ref. VIII, 19 is often quoted in research in order to show that the Phrygian prophets wrote numerous books to complete the New Testament. It is, however, marked by an obvious editorial activity: the motive of countless books belongs to the author's heresiological arsenal and should not be counted as a testimony for the history of the New Testament canon. The author is more concerned about the issue of women's ministry : the conflict is on the one hand about the status of Priscilla and Maximilla as prophetic teachers, based on the prophetic office of the Paraclete, and on the other hand about their claims to write « prophetic » commentaries. The underlying principle is the Pauline prohibition that women teach, a fortiori that they write books.
