This volume, the first in a major new series which will provide authoritative texts of key non-canonical gospel writings, comprises a critical edition, with full translations, of all the extant manuscripts of the Gospel of Mary. In addition, an extended Introduction discusses the key issuesinvolved in the interpretation of the text, as well as locating it in its proper historical context, while a Commentary explicates points of detail. The gospel has been important in many recent discussions of non-canonical gospels, of early Christian Gnosticism, and of discussions of the figure ofMary Magdalene. The present volume will provide a valuable resource for all future discussions of this important early Christian text.
Christopher Tuckett is Professor of New Testament Studies, University of Oxford.
