The editing of the texts has been carried out by an arrangement with my colleague Dr. L. D, Barnett, Keeper of the Department of Oriental Printed Books and Manuscripts in the British Museum. The longest and perhaps most interesting Apocryphon is the Book of the Eesurrection which is attributed to Bartholomew the Apostle. It describes the descent of our Lord into heU, the conquest of Death and his sons, the defeat of the Devil, the destruction of the gates, bolts, and bars

the very mutilated condition of the text, the Trustees

A. D, 990.

According to it our Lord sent a cloud into all parts of the world wherein were the Apostles in order that it might bring them to Him on the Mount of Olives. When all the Apostles had arrived there John asked the Lord to explain to him the Mysteries of the Heavens, and the laws which regulated the fall of dew and rain, and other natural phenomena. Having summoned a Cherubim (sic) the Lord committed John to his care, and told him to answer The angel having set John fully all his questions. upon his wing of light bore him up through the Seven Heavens and described to him their conHe shewed him the Twelve Eulers of struction. the worlds of light, and the fountain whence fell the rain upon the earth, and described to him the laws which govern the succession of day and night,
