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

Secondary Acts of Paul 1

(a) Martyrium Beati Pauli Apostoli

Attributed to Pseudo‐Linus (cf. a similar martyrdom of Peter by Pseudo‐Linus; see under Acts of Peter), this is a Latin reworking of the conclusion to the Acts of Paul. Many manuscripts have survived.

Editions

  • Lipsius–Bonnet, i. 23–44, and see esp. Prolegomena, pp. xiv–xxiii.

  • Fabricius, ii. 775 f.

Modern Translations

French

  • Migne, Dictionnaire, ii, cols. 665–74.

Italian

  • Erbetta, ii. 289–96.

(b) The Acts of Titus by Pseudo‐Zenas

Brought to light by James, Apoc. Anec. i. 54–7, who dated it not earlier than the fifth century. His edition has been superseded by the publication of the text by F. Halkin, ‘La légende crétoise de saint Tite’ Anal. Boll. 79 (1961), 241–56.

This text is perhaps of value in helping to restore the text of the act of Paul in Antioch. When referring to the events known from the Coptic manuscript as the Myra and Sidon episodes the Acts of Titus places them after Paul's conversion in Damascus and puts the Panchores incident in Antioch later; these Acts are, however, not to be trusted as an infallible guide to the original order of the Acts of Paul. (See M. R. James, ‘The Acts of Titus and the Acts of Paul’, JTS 6 (1905), 549–56 (cf. id., ‘A Note on the Acta Pauli’, ibid. 244–6).)

(c) Syriac History of the Holy Apostle Paul

P. Bedjan, Acta Martyrum et Sanctorum, i (Paris, 1890), 33–6.

This text is possible linked to the canonical Acts, rather than the Acta Pauli.

(d) Acts of Andrew and Paul (Coptic)

See under Acts of Andrew, F.

(e) Pseudo‐Abdias, Book 2

See under Other Apocryphal Acts, 6.

For other secondary acts relating details about Paul, see the Acts of Peter: Secondary Acts 2a, 2b, and 3; and cf. Hennecke5, ii. 394–9 (A. de Santos Otero); Eng. trans. ii. 440–3.
