Tradition is the living faith of the dead. Traditionalism is the dead faith of the living.'' from ''The Vindication of Tradition'' :''For those who believe that you don't need tradition because you have the [[Bible]], the Christian Tradition has sought to say, "You are not entitled to the beliefs you cherish about such things as the [[Holy Trinity]] without a sense of what you owe to those who worked this out for you." To circumvent Saint [[Athanasius the Great|Athanasius]] on the assumption that if you put me alone in a room with the [[trusteeNew Testament]], I will come up with the doctrine of the Trinity, is naive. So for these readers I have tried to provide a degree of historical sophistication, which is, I believe, compatible with an affirmation of the central doctrines of Christian faith.''
