In addition to the four Gospels contained within the New Testament, a considerable number of other Gospels exist. Although these works embody myth and creative imagination rather than historical truth, they offer intriguing, surprising, and sometimes challenging perspectives, embodying a range of alternative understandings of the person of Jesus. This weekend will present an overview of the history and context of the non-canonical Gospels, and an illuminating survey of some of the more significant and interesting of these apocryphal writings.
The cost includes two nights' accommodation at the Monastery Guesthouse, meals and entry into the Museum and Art Gallery.
