"Let us look at the very tradition, teaching and faith of the Catholic Church which the Lord gave, the Apostles preached and the Fathers preserved" - St. Athanasius of Alexandria (A.D. 296-373)
Holy Scripture is the collection of books written under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, by the Prophets and the Hagiographers, the Apostles and the Evangelists. These books have been received by the Church as inspired.
Tradition is the non-written word of God, which has been transmitted by word of mouth by Jesus Christ and by the apostles, and which has come down to us through the centuries by the means of the Church, without being altered.
