The Gospel of Peter is one of the most fascinating apocryphal texts of the 2nd century. The studies in the present volume are concerned with the question of the reconstruction of the text and philological questions associated with this, with the possible contexts of its genesis and with intertexts which may be of significance in interpreting it. The result is a number of insights into the theology of this text which are partly surprising and partly controversial.
