An expansive compilation of New Testament apocrypha in English translation, featuring fascinating but heretofore unpublished texts.
New Testament Apocrypha, vol. 3, continues the More New Testament Apocrypha series’ quest to unearth the vast diversity of Christian scripture outside of the traditional canon. This new collection encompasses a broad range of languages—Greek, Church Slavic, Old English, Coptic, and more—and spans centuries, from the formation of the canonical New Testament to the high Middle Ages.
The selections here represent some of the least studied apocryphal texts, many of which have not previously received an English translation or even a critical edition. Notable newly edited and translated selections include the Martyrdom of Zechariah, the Decapitation of John the Forerunner, the Birth of John, the Revelation about the Lord’s Prayer, and the Dialogue of Mary and Christ on the Departure of the Soul.
Each text is accompanied by a robust introduction, bibliography, and notes. Scholars of apocrypha, Scripture, and hagiography from a breadth of disciplines will find this an indispensable reference for their research and teaching.
