I was looking at the Gospels and noted that Wikipedia uses the term 'triple tradition' for accounts that are common to Mark, Mathew and Luke and 'double tradition' for accounts in Mathew and Luke.

I find the word tradition a little patronising and would prefer something else. Is there another term? Maybe 'testimony'?

I don't think the terminology is necessarily a problem, but if you're in a context where it might be, I think double/triple testimony would work just fine.
