This question goes out to the more mature of Orthodox Christians who have been around the block a few times. What is your opinion of this document? I've been told by one who has been conducting a thorough study of the history of the Church that it was written some 150-180 years after the events it describes and was rejected by the early Church as being non-canonical and a forgery. I've heard Fr. Thomas Hopko also admit that while we may learn from it, it was clearly not historical. While the teachings concerning Mary are widely held by the church...should they be? Any good history on this subject would be most appreciated.
