I just got an e-mail from the Association pour l’étude de la littérature apocryphe chrétienne (AELAC) concerning the First Summer School on Christian Apocryphal Literature, which will take place in Strasbourg between 24-27 June 2012. Right after the summer school (June 28-30), the annual reunion of AELAC will be held in Dole, where I might deliver a report concerning some Coptic apocryphal texts (I wish to thank Dr. Jean-Daniel Kaestli for the kind invitation).
The Latin Collection of the Acts of the Apostles (pseudo-Abdias)

About something else entirely: in your research on Severus of Antioch, have you found anything that indicates that he was familiar with the Heothina-series of readings — that is, the eleven Resurrection Gospels that were read on Sunday mornings? If so, could you point me to where I could find that reference? Is it in his 77th Homily?
Yours in Christ,
