Acts of Paul: The Formation of a Pauline Corpus by Glenn E. Snyder

By Glenn E. Snyder

Acts of Paul is a set of early Christian traditions that weren't integrated within the canonized Acts: the Acts of Paul and Thekla , three Corinthians , the Martyrdom of Paul , and different significant tales, resembling Paul baptizing a lion. by means of the tip of the second one century, there has been a rumor in North Africa that 'Acts of Paul' have been fabricated by way of a presbyter in Asia Minor (Tertullian, De baptismo 17.5); and to today, it really is alleged that Acts of Paul is later than and not as good as the traditions preserved in Acts - traditionally, theologically, and differently. yet what facts is there for the composition and reception of Acts of Paul ? during this research Glenn E. Snyder seriously examines Greek, Latin, and Coptic witnesses to Acts of Paul from the second one to 6th centuries, with chapters at the independently circulating acts, extant collections, and different proof for the formation of Acts of Paul.
