Sometime in the second century, an early Christian text began to circulate called the Acts of Paul and Thecla. Since then, the tale of the apostle Paul, along with his strong heroine coworker named Thecla, has received much attention as an independent source of information about earliest Christianity for what it might tell us about the role of women in ministry and the relationship women may have had to Paul in his missionary activi ties. In this volume, Jeremy W. Barrier provides a critical introduction and commentary on the Acts of Paul and Thecla, to serve as a userfriendly starting point for anyone interested in entering into the many discussions and academic writings surrounding the Acts of Paul and Thecla. Apart from a critical text with English translation, followed by textual notes and general comments, the author also offers an extensive introduction to the text.
