 Tradition
Tradition understood as "the action of transmitting" was nevertheless in common usage in France up to the end of the 18th century and is still part of today's legal lexicon.
Tradition is not the body of customs but rather that which derives from the philosophia perenis.[8] Far from encompassing a body of observed and accepted rules, it constitutes a doctrine voluntarily and consciously transmitted as principles -- a series of transcendental truths of permanent worth and of non-human origin.
Thus conceived, Tradition is defined as a coherent body of intangible and sacred principles imposed on all which delineates the essential rules of conduct, allowing man to accede to the supra-human level, allowing the homo to detach from the humus, to pass from the terrestrial to the celestial order.

 The Future of Tradition by Lee Harris - Policy Review 131   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Those defending a tradition at all costs must adopt the relativist view that there is no higher standard by which to judge one tradition against another, as this is the only way to make sure that tradition may not be overthrown by the confrontation with such a standard.
For when confronted with any particular tradition, we now have two different criteria to evaluate its usefulness — first, the usefulness of the tradition’s base, the visceral code out of which the social structure of the community is created, and second, the usefulness of the tradition’s ideological superstructure.
Thus, a tradition can be a passive inheritance from the past that weighs heavily on the present generation or a vehicle for actively transforming the present generation in accordance with the pattern set by the borrowed tradition.

 SVS: Education Day Articles: Fr John Behr
What Paul "traditions" as the basis of the Christian faith is the understanding and proclamation of the crucified and exalted Christ "according to the Scriptures," referring, not to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but to the Law, the Psalms and the Prophets.
The "tradition" which the apostles have bequeathed to us, therefore, is not fixed in one text (we have four Gospels, after all, presenting the versions of the four evangelists).
Rather the "tradition" in which we stand, as Orthodox Christians, is the contemplation of Christ "according to the Scriptures," remaining true to the deposit handed over by the apostles, yet with our faces towards the future, towards the one who is still coming.
