I’ve been doing a thread on Lost Gospels as these are represented by fragments of manuscripts that have been discovered and by quotations in the writings of church fathers. I was getting ready to post my favorite one today and then I wondered: Have I talked about that one before on the blog? Turns out, yes! Some years ago.

It is a fragment that MAY be a lost portion of the also otherwise also lost Gospel of Peter.  The Gospel of Peter is not *completely* lost: we have a chunk of it.  But how large a chunk, we can’t really say.  I’ve talked about it on the blog several times, but have decided that I need to say something about it again, to make sense of the fragment that will be coming in a later post.

And to talk about the Gospel of Peter itself will require a couple of posts.  So here’s the first.
