The Consistency Principle As Realised in the Early Church Catechism

Alexandra Budanova

The author attempts to argue the integrated nature of the catechetical tradition by viewing it in light of the consistency principle. The article provides definitions of the principle and arguments in support of its significance and relevance based on writings by the Church Fathers such as St Irenaeus of Lyons, St Hyppolytus of Rome, St Cyril of Jerusalem, St John Chrysostom, St Ambrose of Milan and St Augustine, as well as by the Doctors of the Church such as Tertullian, Origen and Clement of Alexandria. Further, the article reviews application of the principal in theory and practice of catechesis.
Keywords: consistency principle, catechesis, catechisms, catechetical instruction, Church Fathers, Doctors of the Church.
