The Medieval Gospel of Barnabas


After long neglect, there is now a growing literature on the Gospel of Barnabas in numerous languages. Unfortunately, most of that literature is of a polemical nature and contributes little to the scholarly study of the work. The following bibliography is not intended as a comprehensive listing of current or past works.
