A New PhD Dissertation on Secret Mark

A few blog posts have noted that Timo Paananen has submitted his doctoral dissertation on the fragments of the so-called “Secret Gospel of Mark” in the letter to Theodore ascribed to Clement of Alexandria. I have quickly skimmed through the introduction of what looks like an interesting thesis. When I have time, I will have to add it to the bibliography that I compiled for the e-Clavis: Christian Apocrypha, which covers the whole spectrum of scholarship from those who defend the authenticity of the letter (and thus factor this apocryphal Gospel into their analysis of the development of the Gospel tradition) to those who dismiss it as an ancient or a modern forgery. You can see some of Paananen’s other articles on this topic at his academia.edu page.
