The Apocryphal Texts

In this Muffin Talk Fr Merv Duffy sm explains what the Apocryphal Text are – the texts “that didn’t make it into the Bible”. These are the texts that describe Mary’s childhood, her parents Anne and Joachim, the choice of Joseph as her husband and many more details. Many of these documents derive from the Protoevangelium of James.
