The major surviving fragment of the Gospel of Peter, and of the Apocalypse of Peter, with extensive commentary, largely on their relationship to the canonical Gospels and other early texts. The Gospel of Peter contains an detailed account of the events after the Crucifixion and of the Resurrection, which exonerate Pilate and the Romans; it also diminishes Jesus' sufferings to the extent that it was accused of heresy. The Apocalypse of Peter is one of the earliest of the long line of Chrisitian texts on the pleasures of Heaven and the punishments in Hell. Note on the possibility that all the texts in which Peter is narrator were written together. Word-index for each text.
