What do elementary things refer to?
Most likely, 'elementary things' refers to the rules and regulations by means of which both Jews and Gentiles attempted to achieve salvation/ensure future life with God in glory. In context, Paul is primarily referring to Jews and Mosaic law (cf. Galatians 3:22-23), secondarily to the Gentile believers (philosophical teachings).
