York Secret Mark Symposium Papers Coming Soon

The papers presented at last Spring's Symposium on Secret Mark—Ancient Gospel or Modern Forgery? The Secret Gospel of Mark in Debate—have been accepted for publication by Cascade Books. I am currently editing the papers and hope to have the manuscript to the publisher in February.

There are plans also for another York Christian Apocrypha Symposium, but not until 2013. It was unlikely that we would receive funding without some "outcome" from the first symposium, and there was some delay in securing a contract in time for funding proposal season. We do not know yet what the topic will be for 2013, but I will post information when it becomes available.

    I am very much looking forward to this publication; I would have loved to have gone to the conference itself if still in Canada, but have been doing PhD work in the UK so it was a no-go 🙁 Anyways, I am researching the reception history of Mark in the patristic period and slightly lean towards authenticity of the letter to Theodore (though not yet sure what to do with Secret Mark, was it written by same evangelist or just some later addition in Alexandria?), but I will wait to see if this book will convince me in what direction or the other.
