Thread Name: What is The Tradition?
Subject: What is The Tradition?
To what extent does the Revival actually represent The Tradition it purports to represent?
To what extent did The Tradition exist in the first place?
To what extent might the revival be said to be a Tradition in and off itself regardless (and irrespective as much (if not most) of it obviously is) of what may (or may not) have gone before?
In what sense might the stylistic conventions (and affectations) of The Revival be said to represent The Tradition - or are these stylistic conventions indicative of something else altogether?
What exactly is The Tradition anyway?
Is The Revival justified in claiming exclusive representation of The Tradition?
To what extent has The Revival succeeded in its aims and objectives with respect of The Tradition?
