Easter and Holy Week in the Papyri and Christian Apocrypha

It’s that time. Today is Palm Sunday, the start of Holy Week. Christians have written about these events and how they worship for centuries.

I’d like to point you to posts I’ve written in previous years for some reading this week:

  • Holy Week in Early Christian Papyri. This is a series of five posts, each examining different early Christian papyri that have something to do with Holy Week.
  • Supplementary Easter Reading: The Acts of Pilate. This post gives brief information on the Acts of Pilate, which recount the trial and crucifixion of Jesus and also the “Harrowing of Hell.” Links to PDFs of an English translation of the material are also included.
