Evangelium Petri concerns a preaching of Jesus, which he gave during the time between His death and His resurrection to those who were sleeping. To understand the sources and to figure out the cultural background and meaning of the pseudo-Peter’s writing Pia De Simone compares this narration with two references to the descent of Jesus into hell which are to be found in the 1st letter of Peter.
