Reviews

"Turning upside down the most accepted understanding of the Gospel of Judas (Codex Tchacos), April DeConick gives a radically new reading of this Coptic apocryphon, based on her fresh, personal translation... Those who are interested in the Gnostic adventure cannot miss The Thirteenth Apostle." Professor Madeleine Scopello, Director of Research at the National Centre of Scientific Research Sorbonne, Paris"
