Forgeries in the Name of Paul

Lecture no. 16 from the course: Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication

 Forgeries in the Name of Paul

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

A number of letters survive that are credited to the apostle Paul, but which were clearly fabricated. This lecture considers two sets of such correspondence. Evidently forged in the fourth century, these letters were meant to portray Paul as equal to the greatest minds of his day.
