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

Coptic Infancy Stories

James (pp. 87–9) draws attention to some of the many Lives, Panegyrics, Discourses, etc. in Coptic, complete and fragmentary, which tell the story of the Virgin's birth. Some of these can be found in F. Robinson, Coptic Apocryphal Gospels (Cambridge, 1896), especially pp. 2–43 (= Texts and Studies 42), and E. A. Wallis Budge, Miscellaneous Coptic Texts in the Dialect of Upper Egypt (London, 1915).

These documents on the whole show great negligence in the use of ancient sources and great licence on the part of the writers. These characteristics seem commonplace in Christian literature from Egypt. Similar features can be seen in the other categories of apocryphal material in Coptic, such as in the Passion narratives and in the Acts and Apocalypses.
