Subject:        "Gnostic" Gospels

For those interested in the apocryphal gospels in medieval drama.  It
was not I who introduced the term "gnostic gospels" into the
discussion.  Indeed I, like Mike Jensen, am puzzled by the term in
context, and I looked about for the connection between the Gospel of
Nicodemus and other apocrypha in the 14th and 15th centuries and
gnosticism.  Did not find any.  I believe I first encountered the
putative connection in a Mike Jensen letter.

Yours for the pursuit of apocryphal knowledge,
John Velz
