.
Abdelas, Bishop of Babylon (V-VI) was one of the 70 apostles mentioned in the Gospel of Luke. This collection of apocrypha, which was translated from Hebrew, Greek, and then Latin by Jules l'Africain, is mistakenly attributed to him. It is in fact a Latin compilation bringing together the lives of several apostles, composed in the entourage of Gregory of Tours in the 6th century. It was Lazius who attributed this text to Abdias, mentioning it in a notice.
However, no manuscript attributes this collection to Abdias

This is very rarely on the market.

    Merci de votre achat et de votre bonne appréciation.

    Votre commentaire est cependant un peu étrange, et devrait s'adresser au service clientèle de Catawiki plutôt qu'ici,.
    En tant que vendeur, je ne suis évidemment pour rien dans vos embarras avec vos propres acheteurs.

    Cordialement,
