The Acts of John

Full Product Description

The Acts of John is here rescued from a long history of censorship and extensive editing that sought to whitewash aspects of the text that had become uncomfortable for later generations of the church. Although several tantalizing tales are now lost, what remains is a compelling story of the convert Drusiana, who was twice the victim of lust--once from her husband, who imprisoned her in a tomb, and later from an outsider, whose love sickness drove her to the tomb. This study edition features a detailed introduction that sorts out the complicated manuscript tradition together with cross references and notes on sources that enable in-depth study. The Early Christian Apocrypha series offers fresh new translations of the major apocryphal Acts that survive from the early period of the Christian church. These non-canonical writings are crucial for determining the complex history of Christian origins. Each text comes with cross-references, notes, and commentary. An extensive introduction also sets out the challenge of recovering and reconstructing the original text.

The Acts of John by Richard I. Pervo was published by Polebridge Press in November 2015. The ISBN for The Acts of John is 9781598151671.
