Gospel Of Mary (Bg, 1)

OF MARY (BG, 1)

A Gnostic revelation discourse between the risen and his disciples, followed by a report by of a special revelation given to her by the Savior. The title occurs at the end: “ According to Mary.”

The of Mary is poorly preserved (10 of the original 18 pages are missing), but enough is left to show that Mary, whose chief antagonist is Peter, is preeminent among Jesus’ in the tractate. A third-century of the original version is known. The of Mary was probably written in second-century and translated into Coptic in the early fourth century.
