Overview

One of the greatest discoveries in Judeo-Christian archaeology, the Gospel of Judas did not head straight to a museum, or even to the library of a rich collector. The gospel's removal from its burial place was just the beginning of a bizarre cloak-and-dagger journey.


The ancient manuscript, treated like a piece of merchandise, would be shopped around on three continents over the next 25 years, its contents glimpsed only a few times between long periods of inactivity in far from ideal storage conditions. In this compelling and exhaustively researched account, Herbert Krosney chronicles the quest for the Gospel of Judas, its discovery, and eventual modern publication.
