he wrote me, and what I've since discovered. The text that Steve downloaded
is an 1895 King James English translation by one Rev. Hope W. Hogg, B.D.,
from an Arabic translation published in 1888. The text is at:
This translation is from vol.10 of a 38-volume work called "Early Church
Fathers", located online at http://www.ccel.org/fathers2. The first ten
volumes of this work (for which I've been unable to find publication dates)
is entitled "Ante-Nicene Fathers", and vol.10 is titled "Recently
Discovered Additions to Early Christian Literature". Since these "recently
discovered additions" include also the Gospel of Peter, this work must be,
as you say, about 100 years old now. I agree with your comments about its
usefulness (or rather lack thereof), but it's evidently the only thing online.
The letters 'ccel' in the above URL's stands for "Christian Classics
Ethereal Library", maintained by Calvin College (Grand Rapids, Michigan), a
fundamentalist Christian college whose president recently resigned on
charges of moral terpitude.
Don't want none'a that old time religion!
