Gospel of Thomas

This is an online bibliography of the Gospel of Thomas with Greek texts (and at some point, a Coptic one, Deo volente).


At this point, the bibliography is still a static list with authors sorted by last name. I'm in the process of designing a new database, so that you can query by date, language etc. I think it would also be useful to label publications with logion numbers, but that's a laborious addition on my part. The goal is to present as many publications as possible (except reviews). The following printed bibliographies are or will be included:

  • Giversen, S., Nag Hammadi Library Bibliography 1948-1963. [online]
  • Fitzmyer, J.A., The Oxyrhynchus logoi of Jesus and the Coptic Gospel according to Thomas, in: idem, Essays on the Semitic background of the New Testament, Scholar's Press, Montana, 1974, 420-433. [online]
  • Scholer, D.M., Nag Hammadi Library 1970-1994, E.J. Brill, Leiden, 1997, 309-347 [in process].

Coptic Text

This part of the web site is still under construction. I'm planning to add text images and a translation, similar to the Greek texts.

Greek Texts

The online editions of Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 1, 654, 655 and the Funeral Shroud are one of the few online presentations of the Greek fragments. I would like to create different views of these papyri, in addition to the current ones. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let me know through the online contact form.
