Death of St. Mary

edited December 1969 in Coptic Orthodox Church
So in sunday school we heard the story of st.mary's death. It was not mentioned in the bible but it was mentioned in some aincent  boharic texts. I was wondering if anyone had any english or arabic translations


  • Most of the story is referenced in the Synaxarium, and also in the Apocryphal Gospel of St. James.

    In the last 5-6 yrs, there was a translation printed in Coptic Church Review.  They are based in East Brunswick, NJ.

  • so there is no way to get a hold of them in poor old maryland?
  • Ehna ghalbaneen ya ragil :)
  • If you wish to study in some depth, here is a website with the texts, in English, of the ancient tradition...

    God bless your studies

    Father Peter
  • I never knew an alexandrian tradition ever mentioned a physical resurrection of St Mary, or did i misread what St Theodosius wrote..can someone please explain? I always assumed her dead body was caught up into paradise untill the day of the general resurrection???
