This article deals with the so-called Judas 'Gospel'. It demonstrates that this is, broadly speaking, a Gnostic writing, even though it is difficult to define the concept of 'Gnosticism'. It commences by outlining the intricate history of the find, moves on to the transmission history of this Coptic writing. It focuses on the composition of the 'Gospel' and demonstrates that it was fundamentally influenced by Jewish cosmological thought.
