Abstract

SALOME THE SISTER OF JESUS, SALOME THE DISCIPLE OF JESUS, AND THE SECRET GOSPEL OF MARK by RICHARD BAUCKHAM Manchester The name Salome occurs in the New Testament only twice, in Mark 15:40; 16:1, where it designates the third of three women disciples of Jesus. Perhaps it is not surprising that this disciple of Jesus has received very little attention, even in recent studies of the women disciples of Jesus.' But she is not infrequently named in extra-canonical Gospel traditions and other early Christian literature. Because she appears in one of the two quotations from the Secret Gospel of Mark, which Clement of Alexandria gives in his Letter to Theodorus,2 the fullest previous study of the figure of Salome in early Christian literature is the two pages which Morton Smith devotes to her in his exhaustive study of Clement's Letter and Secret Mark.' Smith assembles most, though not quite all, of the significant references to Salome, but closer study of these references shows his interpretation of the evidence to be seriously deficient. In par- ticular, (1) he does not distinguish the disciple Salome from a sister of Jesus who was also known by the name Salome in some
