Chapter Summary

For more than a thousand years Western Christianity has read the Epistola ad Laodicenses in numerous manuscripts of the Vulgate and in German, Czech and English translations. This letter could impossibly have been written by Paul, something already hotly contended by Erasmus. Only the introductory words were very clearly derived from the Epistle to the Galatians. This chapter focuses on these introductory words. The Epistle to the Laodiceans, transmitted in Latin in many manuscripts of the Vulgate and attributed to the apostle Paul, belongs to the so-called Apocrypha of the New Testament. The Epistle to the Laodiceans may be identical with Apocryphon.
