Apocrypha in the Church Fathers
Just this week I received my copy of Sacra Scriptura, the latest collection of papers on the non-canonical texts, edited by James Charlesworth and Lee McDonald (with Blake Jurgens). These papers, I believe all, were presented at the SBL in the section Function of the Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal Texts in Early Judaism and Early Christianity. The volume has several interesting essays, not least the first one, called "Writings Labeled 'Apocrypha' in Latin Patristic Sources." Okay, that's my paper. The title tells you pretty much what it's about. If the subject stimulates any interest in you, check out my paper, which you can find here.
