Abstract

Texts presented from the "Gospel of Pseudo-Thomas" and the "Contra haereses" of Irenaeus (both written before A.D. 200) employ the word "alphabet," and are earlier than D. Diringer's citation for its first appearance in literature. Bibliological terms found in the "Apocrypha" and "Pseudepigrapha" of the Bible and some early Christian literature are translated and presented in their context and discussed. It is concluded that some terms are not adequately treated in the standard lexica; thus thorough examinations of such terms in individual Christian writers of this early period are still needed.
