Ealier this week, Jim Davila posted news of the death of Robert (Robin) McLachlan Wilson as the result of a massive stroke that he’d suffered in the previous week. He was ninety-four years old and it appears that until the stroke, he was still active – publishing his last book just before he turned 90.
He was one of the earlier scholars who wrote on GosThom. I have three items by him (other than two book reviews) in my collection:
Wilson, Robert McLachlan (1960a), Studies in the Gospel of Thomas (London: Mowbray).
— (1960b), ‘Thomas and the Growth of the Gospels.’, Harvard Theological Review, 53 (10), 231-50.
— (1960c), ‘Thomas and the Synoptic Gospels’, Expository Times, 72 (11), 36-39.
He wrote lucidly and coherently and I enjoyed reading his work. Rest in Peace
