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,
