Hegesippus's a c c o u n t o f J a m e s ' s m a r t y r d o m , recorded by Eusebius (Hist, eccl. 2 . 2 3 . 4 - 1 8 ) , which apparently tries t o h a r m o n i z e the story o f J a m e s ' s death found in Josephus with that found in C l e m e n t o f Alexandria, is equally hagiographic and historically unconvincing. T h e second-century d o c u m e n t known as the Gospel o f the H e b r e w s describes the appearance o f J e s u s t o J a m e s in eucharistic language, clearly borrowing from a selection o f N T texts and referring (like the Gospel o f T h o m a s and Eusebius) to J a m e s as " J a m e s the R i g h t e o u s .
1; T. Naph. 4. Mand. attribute all these to h a p p e n s t a n c e , 38 and it seems hard to deny that H e r m a s must have had s o m e knowledge o f the material o f J a m e s . T h i s knowledge could have been o f the material in a form not yet collected into the Epistle o f J a m e s as we know it, which would allow for the two-stage view, but it makes the late-date pseudonymous view quite unlikely. O t h e r similarities to J a m e s are found in the Pseudo-Clementine literature, Didache, Epistle o f B a r n a b a s , and the second-century apologists J u s t i n , Irenaeus, and Clement o f Alexandria, but most o f these can be attributed to the c o m m o n Christian milieu rather than to any direct influence from J a m e s (see J o h n s o n 1995: 6 6 - 6 8 ) .
40 T h e earliest undeniable reference to J a m e s occurs in Pseudo-Clement, Virg. 4: " N o r did they heed what the scripture says: Let not many a m o n g you be teachers, brethren, n o r let all be prophets. " Although no indication o f the a u t h o r is given, it is clear evidence that J a m e s not only was known (Ropes 1 9 1 6 : 5 1 - 5 2 ) but also was regarded as canonical in the early third century. 41 As the Pseudo-Clementine literature also contains several (rather hagiographic) references to J a m e s , the a u t h o r of De virginitate certainly would have esteemed as c a n o n i c a l a letter that he thought had been written by J a m e s .
