The Gnostic Gospel of Thomas
(c. 80)

Detail of Rubens's Martyrdom of St. Thomas,
alleged but unlikely author of this "gospel"

Just the Facts:

  • Date: around 80 CE
  • Language: Coptic
  • What it is: Middle Eastern apocryphal New Testament book made up of sayings of Jesus, some with a decidedly Gnostic flavor

Let's consider this a placeholder as I build out the site.
Once that's done, I'll be back to fill in the details--an essay,
links to online and Amazon books, and more. I'll be posting
updates on Facebook and Twitter. Follow along!

Until I get to it, there's always Wikipedia!
