This chapter examines the reception of Joseph's canonical scenes in the earliest oral and literary traditions with an eye to their subsequent development through expansion (in the apocryphal Gospel of Peter, c. second century); through preaching (in the homilies of John Chrysostom, c.390); through translation (in the Old Latin and Jerome's Vulgate, c.382–4); through harmonization (in Augustine of Hippo's De consensu evangelistarum, c.404); and through supplementation with extra scenes (in the Gospel of Nicodemus, c. fourth century).

Keywords:   Gospel of Peter, John Chrysostom, Jerome, Vulgate, Augustine of Hippo, De consensu evangelistarum, Gospel of Nicodemus
