Il manoscritto copto e la figlia del giardiniere (The coptic fragment and the gardener's daughter)

 

Cosa accade a una figlia di Pietro?

1 Interponiamo ad altre più copiose narrazioni questo libro di cui purtroppo non possediamo l'intero testo come sappiamo dai commentatori:

We have: 1. A short episode in Coptic. 2. A large portion in Latin preserved in a single manuscript of the seventh century at Vercelli: often called the Vercelli Acts. It includes the martyrdom. 3. The martyrdom, preserved separately, in two good Greek copies, in Latin, and in many versions-Coptic, Slavonic, Syriac, Armenian, Arabic, Ethiopic. Also: One or two important quotations from lost portions; a small fragment of the original in a papyrus; certain passages-speeches of Peter- transferred by an unscrupulous writer to the Life of St. Abercius of Hierapolis. A Latin paraphrase of the martyrdom, attributed to Linus, Peter's successor in the bishopric of Rome, was made from the Greek, and is occasionally useful.
