Although the existence of secret traditions in the earliest strata of
Christianity is now recognized by most scholars, the importance of
these traditions is not always appreciated. These traditions disappeared

religious traditions such as the Greek mysteries, Zoroastrianism or
Judaism, strengthens the hypothesis of significant esoteric trends in
early Christianity
