Publisher: A. R. Mowbray, 1962
This edition has been translated from the Coptic text. The Gospel of Philip belongs to the same collection of Gnostic documents as the more famous Gospel of Thomas. It has never been considered as anything but a Gnostic document.
It has been suggested that it was written in the second century B.C.E. Thus, it may be one of the earliest documents for some of the themes which figure in later apocryphal literature.
In addition to the English translation of the gospel, there are two other parts of interest in the book: The Theology of Philip; and Commentary.
