Chapter Summary

Four scholars, Pick, Hennecke, Flamion, and James have attempted reconstructions of the Acts of Andrew (AA). The first two, Pick and Hennecke, however, really attempted only a reconstruction of the Passion of Andrew as it would have been found in the AA. Both made the error of omitting the Gregorian text. Flamion went farther and made a detailed analysis of the sources and suggested in detail which belonged to the AA and which to later hands. His reconstruction included Gregory; because Flamion did not actually write a reconstructed text, James in his Apocryphal New Testament did so, combing Flamion's suggestions with the second edition of Hennecke. James' reconstructed and translated text, as it stands, is nearly complete, lacking only the Utrecht fragment. The true theology of the Acts of Andrew can be found only in the Utrecht and Vatican fragments and, to a lesser extent, in Narratio.
