The Apocryphal New Testament Easy to use collection of English translations of the New Testament Apocrypha.

The Epistle to the Alexandrians

This is a now lost epistle, the existence of which is known only from a reference in the Muratorian Fragment (line 64) where it is rejected as Marcionite.

James (ANT 479–80) includes a liturgical epistle, which Zahn 1 Kanon, ii. 586–92 (Latin text). The text is also in French in Vouaux, 327–32. Italian trans.: Erbetta, iii. 69–70; Moraldi, ii. 1723, 1733–4, 1739. had considered to be part of the lost epistle to the Alexandrians. It forms part of the seventh–eighth century Sacramentary and Lectionary of Bobbio (Paris Bib. Nat. Lat. 13246) and is headed ‘Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Colossians’, but it is not from that letter or any other Pauline epistle. James judged it not to be an apocryphon at all. There are many other similar pieces scattered about in manuscripts called ‘preachings’ of Paul or the like, which are just centos of texts and precepts. James suggested an Irish provenance for such a text; M. McNamara, The Apocrypha in the Irish Church (Dublin, 1975, 21984) includes a mention of it (p. 104).

Notes:

1 Kanon, ii. 586–92 (Latin text). The text is also in French in Vouaux, 327–32. Italian trans.: Erbetta, iii. 69–70; Moraldi, ii. 1723, 1733–4, 1739.
