pseudo-Author or Pseudo-Author?[edit]

The article is inconsistent in the capitalization of the pseudo- prefix on the names of the alleged authors. Is there a standard form to use? (Personally, I would prefer non-capitalised, to make it clear that it is a descriptor rather than part of the name, although I have seen Pseudo-Author (or even Pseudoauthor) used in textbooks).

How we talk about pseudepigrapha/forgeries[edit]

I noticed that 73.111.34.123 (talk · contribs) has been changing descriptions of some works of New Testament Apocrypha from being referred to as "forgery" and "spurious" to more straightforward descriptions of who wrote it. See the changes at Hippolytus of Rome, Acts of Paul and Thecla, Epistle of the Corinthians to Paul. Bart Ehrman wrote a book arguing that forged is a more appropriate term than the nonjudgmental but descriptive pseudepigrapha, and that forgery was no more acceptable in ancient times than it is today,[1] so I have used the term on Wikipedia, eg. at Gravi de pugna. What do others think about 73.111.34.123's edits? Is there scholarship which disagrees with Ehrman on this point? Should I avoid saying "forged"? @73.111.34.123: thoughts?
