Apocryphal Traditions in Homily by Theophilus of Alexandria

Alin Suciu has an interesting post about reconstructing a Coptic Homily on the Virgin Mary by Theophilus of Alexandria. The homily contains some apocryphal traditions about the Magi and the death of Zachariah, the latter derived from the Protevangelium of James.

One Response to Apocryphal Traditions in Homily by Theophilus of Alexandria

  1. Rich Griese says:

    I am not interested in the supernaturalism of Christianity, but am very interested in the study of the early history of the group. I am always happy to talk to others that are also interested in this topic. My interest specifically is up till perhaps a generation or two after Irenaeus. But I would say I am interested in anything from the Maccabean revolt up till about 384CE when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman empire.
