The Acts of Paul is one of the major works and earliest pseudepigraphal (noncanonical) series from the New Testament apocrypha also known as Apocryphal Acts.The Acts were first mentioned by Tertullian who found it heretical because it encouraged women to preach and baptize. The Acts were considered orthodox by Hippolytus but were eventually regarded as heretical when the Manichaeans started using the texts. The author of the Acts of Paul is unknown and wrote out of respect for Paul in Asia Minor. The author does not show any dependency on the canonical Acts but uses oral traditions of Paul's missionary work.
