Reading Judas : the Gospel of Judas and the shaping of Christianity by Elaine H Pagels( Book )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 2,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluates the meaning of the controversial, newly-discovered Gospel of Judas, illustrating how the text offers an understanding of Judas's betrayal, the apostles' understanding of Jesus's death, and God's role in the crucifixion
The Gospel of Mary of Magdala : Jesus and the first woman apostle by Karen L King( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 1,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lost for more than fifteen hundred years, the Gospel of Mary is the only existing early Christian gospel written in the name of a woman. Karen L. King tells the story of the recovery of this remarkable gospel and offers a new translation. This brief narrative presents a radical interpretation of Jesus' teachings as a path to inner spiritual knowledge. It rejects his suffering and death as a path to eternal life and exposes the view that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute for what it is--a piece of theological fiction. The Gospel of Mary of Magdala offers a glimpse into the conflicts and controversies that shaped earliest Christianity

De bijdragen in deze bundel onderzoeken de argumenten, op grond van de brieven van Paulus over vrouwen tegen het in het openbaar spreken door vrouwen en de verschillende manieren waarop vrouwen vanaf het ontstaan van de kerk er in geslaagd zijn religieus leiderschap binnen hun parochies te bereiken. Sommigen baseerden hun gezag op goddelijke inspiratie, anderen dankten hun gezag aan hun onafhankelijk denkende medeparochianen, een paar werden zelfs al zodanig erkend door de kerkelijke hiërarchie

The secret revelation of John by Karen L King( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lost in antiquity, rediscovered in 1896, and only recently accessible for study, The Secret Revelation of John offers a firsthand look into the diversity of Christianity before the establishment of canon and creed. Karen L. King offers an illuminating reading of this ancient text - a narrative of the creation of the universe and humanity and a guide to justice and salvation, said to be Christ's revelation to his disciple John." "Freeing the Revelation from the category of "Gnosticism" to which such accounts were relegated, King shows how the Biblical text could be read by early Christians in radical and revisionary ways. By placing the Revelation in its social and intellectual milieu, she revises our understanding of early Christianity and, more generally, religious thought in the ancient Mediterranean world. Her work helps the modern reader through many intriguing - but confusing - ideas in the text: for example, that the creator god of Genesis, a self-described jealous and exclusive god, is not the true Deity but a kind of fallen angel; or, in an overt critique of patriarchy unique in ancient literature, the declaration that the subordination of woman to man was an ignorant act in direct violation of the "holy height"." "In King's analysis, the Revelation becomes not strange but a comprehensible religious vision - and a window on the religious culture of the Roman Empire. A translation of the complete Secret Revelation of John is included."--BOOK JACKET
