François Bovon and Christopher Matthews utilise manuscript evidence gathered within the last half-century to provide a new translation of the apocryphal "Acts of Philip". Discovered by Bovon in 1974 at the Xenophontos monastery in Greece, the manuscript is widely known as one of the most unabridged copies of the Acts yet discovered. Bovon and Matthews' new translation incorporates this witness to the Greek text, which sheds new light on the history of earliest Christianity.
