apocryphal gospels diglot

Postby James Ernest » July 1st, 2011, 11:58 am

[For the moderators: So do NT apocrypha and pseudepigrapha belong in this section of the list, or does "Pseudepigrapha" in "Septuagint and Pseudepigrapha" mean "OT pseudepigrapha"? Maybe the "church fathers" section should be renamed to create a section for early Christian texts outside the NT not restricted to (proto-)orthodox authors?]

But here's what I wanted to mention: April DeConick's blog plugs a diglot edition of the apocryphal gospels from OUP edited by list-member Bart Ehrman and a colleague: http://bit.ly/lKqe1P. Looks like a great resource for people wanting to read early Christian Greek outside of the familiar NT texts that are really impossible for most of us to read without having the familiar published translations constantly popping up in our heads. Has anyone bought and dipped into this book?

That's what "Other" is for ;->

If we get enough posts in this category, I'll create a new category, but not until we have some material for it.

I take "Pseudepigrapha" in the title to refer to the Greek texts of the documents included in Charlesworth’s The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (2 Vols., Doubleday) and M. Denis’s Concordance grecque des pseudépigraphes d’Ancien Testament. Concordance, corpus des texts, indices (Louvain-la-Neuve, 1987).
For quick reference, http://www.logos.com/product/5767/old-t ... morphology has a list of these texts (full disclosure: I morphologically tagged these texts, but receive no royalties or commission).
