  • The Protoevangelium of James: The Birth of Mary the Holy Mother of God, and Very Glorious Mother of Jesus Christ (ca. A.D. 125). May be read online at New Advent and Fish Eaters. Its role as historic evidence of early Christian teaching on the perpetual virginity of the Blessed Mother is discussed on Catholic Answers. [N.B., While it has many other useful materials, certain texts on the Fish Eaters site have an extremely negative view of the Second Vatican Council, which may require correction with the hermeneutic of continuity. Please approach materials at the website with caution.]
