Kilka uwag na temat początków urzędu biskupiego w ujęciu historycznym
Some remarks concerning the origins of the bishop’s office from the historical perspective
Languages of publication
Pursuant to the contemporary teaching of the Catholic Church bishops are deemed the successors of Apostles – and the only continuation in their offices. This thesis, posed by the dogmatic theology, should not be questioned. From the perspective of history, however, the issue is not that straightforward. The oldest monumental Christian scripts would rather suggest the separation of bishops from the presbyters.
