The Apocalypse of Thomas is a work from the New Testament apocrypha, apparently composed originally in Greek.
It concerns the end of the world, and appears to be a rendering of the Apocalypse of John although written in a somewhat less enigmatic or mystical manner. The text was written in Greek and was either copied or translated in Latin in Italy or North Africa. It was widespread in North-western Europe: the Apocalypse was most likely accepted as canonical ‘in certain parts of Western Christendom in the ninth and tenth centuries’
