I don't think that's a concept that can exist on its own. Spiritual predecessors only exist because someone later made a spiritual successor to them.

It has the same sort of relationship as Shout-Out and Referenced by..., except I fail to see the point of listing spiritual predecessors. I feel like it would be more difficult to list a Spiritual Predecessor than a Referenced by..., so imo we just shouldn't list them separately from Spiritual Successor. (Again, because I fail to see the point in doing so.)
