New Testament Apocrypha Vol 1
Mythology And Folklore
About this book
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.
The standard for understanding the massive body of literature that followed the apostolic writings. A carefully documented compendium of Gnostic, et.al. literature. Expensive, and worth the investment.
I had the pleasure of spending 6 months with a two volume set of these, once. Cost was always prohibitive to own a copy and so I had to live near a Library or other friendly patron.This is a selection from the latest most complete collection of these things. It IS amazing!
