The Gospel of Mary

This chapter begins with a brief description of evidence for the existence and text of the Gospel of Mary. The evidence comes from three manuscripts which contain (parts of) text. Prime among these is the manuscript known as Papyrus Berolinensis (BG) 8502, now housed in the Papyrology section of the Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Egyptian Museum and Papyrology Collection, National Museums of Berlin). This codex contains four works in Coptic translation, with the Gospel of Mary as the first in the codex. This manuscript provides the most extensive witness to the text of the gospel. The texts themselves, the language used, and date for the writing of the gospels are discussed.

Keywords:   Gospel of Mary, text, Papyrus Berolinensis 8502, Oxyrhynchus Papyrus 3525, Rylands Papyrus 463
