The apocryphal work “Transitus Beatae Mariae"

I’m sure you have all heard of the apocryphal work “Transitus Beatae Mariae" ( The Assumption of Mary ) that was condemned as heretical by Pope Gelasius in the 5th century.
There are those that use this as “proof” that the early Church did not believe in this dogma.

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can actually read this apocryphal work… anyone have a link ?

bump :wink:

This book translates several early accounts of Mary’s assumption: Shoemaker, Ancient Traditions of Mary’s Dormition and Assumption. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002. You can probably find the version you are looking for in there.
