A"The Apocalypse of PeterA" is the first modern collection of studies on this intriguing Early Christian book, that has mainly survived in Ethiopic. The volume starts with a short survey of the Forschungsgeschichte and a discussion of the old question regarding its eventual inspiration: Greek or Jewish. It is followed by a new look at the circumstances of its finding, the composition of the codex and its character, and also by a new edition of the Bodleian and Rainer fragments. The major part of the book studies various aspects and passages of the A"ApocalypseA": the nature of the Ethiopic pseudo-Clementine work that contained the A"ApocalypseA", false prophets, the Bar Kokhba hypothesis, Paradise, the post-mortem 'baptism' of sinners, the grotesque body, the pattern of justice underlying our work, the Old Testament quotations and the reception of the A"ApocalypseA" in ancient Christianity. The book concludes with a study of the Gnostic A"Apocalypse of PeterA". As has become customary, the volume is rounded off by a bibliography and a detailed index.
