Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Andrew, Brother of Simon Peter: His History and His Legends contains the table of contents, and preface. The book is an exhaustive study of the development of the legends about Andrew. The period covered begins with the appearance of the historic Andrew in the Gospel of Mark and ends with the Syriac references to him in the twelfth century. Every attempt has been made to cover Andrew as the hero of the Bible and as the speaker for various Christian groups, such as the Gnostics, in the New Testament Apocrypha.
