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

Other Lost Gospels

De Santos Otero, 67–75, refers to other titles that are given in diverse patristic sources. These include:

  • (a) The Gospel of the Adversaries of the Law and the Prophets (Augustine, Contra Adversarium Legis et Prophetarum, 2. 3. 14).

  • (b) Memoria of the Apostles (Orosius, Commonitorium de errore . . . , 2). (Cf. James, 21; Hennecke3 (English), i. 265–8, 5(English), i. 376–8; Hennecke3, i. 188–90, 5i. 301–3).

  • (c) The Gospel of Judas Iscariot (Irenaeus, adv. Haer. 1. 31. 1; Epiphanius, adv. Haer. 38. 1; Theodoretus Cyrrhensis, Haer. fabul. comp. 1. 15).

  • (d) The Gospel of Eve (Epiphanius, adv. Haer. 26. 2–3). (Cf. Hennecke3 (English), i. 241–3, 5(English), i. 358–60; Hennecke3, i. 166–7, 5i. 288–90; Éac, 479–82; Erbetta, i. 1, 537–8).

Jerome and Epiphanius refer to the Gospel of Apelles; Epiphanius to the Gospel of Cerinthus; Tertullian to the Gospel of Valentinus. Augustine knew of a Gospel of Andrew. The Gelasian Decree mentions other now lost works. These and others merely serve to remind us that many documents claiming to be or identified as gospels were in circulation and were known to or used by various sects, orthodox and heretical, Jewish and Gnostic.

  • (e) Gnostic gospels such as the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Truth, Sophia Jesu Christi, the two books of Jeu, the Dialogue of the Redeemer, and others are in existence and are discussed inter alia in Hennecke3, i. by H.‐C. Puech (cf. Hennecke5, i. chapter rev. B. Blatz). On the Gospel of Philip see James, 12; de Santos Otero, 63; Hennecke5, i. 148–73, (English), i. 179–208. The Gospel of Truth is translated in Hennecke3 (English), ii. Appendix 2. The contents of these take us outside the scope of the present book, but reference to Hennecke5 will provide up‐to‐date bibliographical details for further study. B. Layton (ed.), The Gnostic Scriptures (London, 1987), and J. M. Robinson (ed.), The Nag Hammadi Library in English (Leiden, 1977; 3rd edn., 1988) give many of these Gnostic texts in translation.
