New Entries for e-Clavis: Christian Apocrypha and Introducing Manuscripta apocryphorum

e-Clavis: Christian Apocrypha is a comprehensive bibliography of Christian Apocrypha research assembled and maintained by members of the North American Society for the Study of Christian Apocryphal Literature (NASSCAL).

The site was launched in February, 2016 with 12 entries. Five new entries were added in the past few months and a number have been assigned to NASSCAL members. The new entries are:

Discourse of the Savior

Dance of the Savior

1 Apocryphal Apocalypse of John

Encomium on Mary Magdalene

On the Funeral of Jesus

A new feature is being added to the entries: individual pages, under the banner Manuscripta apocryphorum, providing details on each manuscript, including online images (where available). More of this information will be added to older entries in the coming months.

For more information on the e-Clavis project, attend the Digital Humanities/Christian Apocrypha Session at the 2016 SBL, which features a paper by Janet Spittler and Tony Burke entitled “Founding an Academic Society in the Digital Age: The North American Society for the Study of Christian Apocryphal Literature.”

e-Clavis is always looking for volunteers to contribute entries for unassigned texts. Contact members of the editorial board for more information.
