D. 112, he asks Trajan’s advice about the appropriate way to conduct legal proceedings against those accused of being Christians. {8} Pliny says that he needed to consult the emperor about this issue because a great multitude of every age, class, and sex stood accused of Christianity. {9} At one point in his letter, Pliny relates some of the information he has learned about these Christians: They were in the habit of meeting on a certain fixed day before it was light, when they sang in alternate verses a hymn to Christ, as to a god, and bound themselves by a solemn oath, not to any wicked deeds, but never to commit any fraud, theft or adultery, never to falsify their word, nor deny a trust when they should be called upon to deliver it up; after which it was their custom to separate, and then reassemble to partake of food–but food of an ordinary and innocent kind. {10} This passage provides us with a number of interesting insights into the beliefs and practices of early Christians.

The fathers of the church, who had a particular role in the process of the formation of the canon, likewise have a foundational role in relation to the living tradition which unceasingly accompanies and guides the church's reading and interpretation of Scripture (cf "Providentissimus: Ench Bibl." 110-111; "Divino Afflante Spiritu," 28-30: "Ench Bibl." 554; "Dei Verbum," 23; PCB, "Instr. de Evang.
