It describes the life of the writer of the Gospel of St. Mark. An account is given of the founding of the great city of Alexandria, the involvement of the later church fathers, the meeting of Mark with Paul of Tarsus, the girl with the prophesying spirit, the sorcerer Bar-Jesus, and finally Mark's martyrdom. An interesting description is also included of changes that were made to the original text of the Mark Gospel by no less a figure than Clement of Alexandria himself, whose writings were themselves later turned down by the developing Christian church.
