Several recent publications have brought renewed vigor to the study of Marcion’s gospel text, the Evangelion, three of which are reviewed here, representing a variety of approaches and conclusions. Significant advances over Harnack’s century-old reconstruction have been achieved, with important ramifications for text, source, and redaction criticism, as well as the history of canon. Yet, the scholarship represented here remains attached to anachronistic notions of authorship that do not give due regard to the cultic setting in which gospels were used, and the resulting fluidity of text that makes a quest for a specific authorial moment and a single original text difficult to fulfill.

Keywords: Marcion; gospel; Evangelion; Luke; priority; source criticism; redaction criticism; canon
