    Abstract:
    “Forbidden Texts on the Western Frontier: The Christian Apocrypha from North American Perspectives” features papers presented at the second York Christian Apocrypha Symposium held in September 2013 at York University in Toronto, Canada. The papers focus on what makes North American Christian Apocrypha scholarship unique, on what has come to define us on the world stage—such as the achievements of the so-called Harvard School (a major champion of the “Bauer Thesis,” which argues that heretical forms of Christianity preceded orthodox forms in some parts of the world in the early centuries), and the use of apocryphal gospels to reconstruct the life and teachings of Jesus. The symposium also considers new avenues of investigation into the Christian Apocrypha, including the examination of new texts, the application of new methodologies and approaches to the literature, and the use of electronic resources for manuscript research.
