Whose Acts of Peter?: Text and Historical Context of the Actus Vercellenses


Mohr Siebeck 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Matthew C. Baldwin clarifies the place of the ancient Acts of Peter in the history of Christian discourse and shows that its later Latin translation, the Actus Vercellenses, is perhaps best studied as a work in its own right. His book has broad implications for how the apocryphal acts of the apostles ought generally to be treated by biblical scholars and historians of early Christianity.
