Summary

When discussing diversity among early Christians, one can point to both geographic dispersion and to doctrinal difference. The first kind, geographic diversity, can be treated briefly, since its contours have been catalogued in detail by other scholars. The larger task for this essay is to reassess various doctrinally distinct groups in light of recent scholarly debates to see what conclusions can be drawn for the second century, with special reference to the corpus known as the Apostolic Fathers.
