The literature on the apostle Peter, as it relates to the study of the New Testament and early Christianity, is vast. In addition to a sizable collection of ancient writings, in which Peter is either a principal character or the alleged author, it includes an extensive library of scholarly works on a range of topics: reconstructions of the historical Peter, examinations of the various images of Peter in the sources, and studies of the literary tradition Peter is thought to have left behind, both in the New Testament and in Christian apocryphal texts. The bibliography offered here, arranged in terms of these categories, focuses, with a few exceptions, on the most recent literature, works published within the last two or three decades.
