This authoritative work is by far the best source for early Christian writings that belong neither to the New Testament nor patristic literature. Here one finds the famous Gospel of Thomas, unknown sayings of Jesus preserved by the Fathers and in fragmentary papyri, legends about Paul and Pilate, infancy gospels, and non-canonical apocalypses. Each document is prefaced by an expert introduction. Newly revised. Volume 1, 544 pp.
An Eighth Day View:
This revised edition is a translation of the sixth German edition, just as the original English "New Testament Apocrypha" was a translation of the third German edition. The introductions to individual texts have been either completely rewritten or thoroughly revised. This book reflects current research findings. The bibliographical data in all sections has been updated as well. Some of the texts have been newly translated, some completely revised, and three completely new texts have been added. Indexes have been included in this volume that allow access to both volumes of the entire work.
