In 1945, a collection ancient codices were found in upper Egypt. Referred to as the Nag Hammandi Scriptures, this important discovery included many primary Gnostic documents—texts that were once believed to have been completely destroyed due to their unorthodox character. These works offer a window into the culture, atmosphere, and literary traditions of the ancient Gnostic movement.
This collection includes modern translations of Gnostic texts: The Exegesis on the Soul, The Hymn of the Pearl, the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Thomas, and the Secret Book of John. Each volume includes commentary, offering analysis and historical context. Learn about the interaction between Greek philosophical thought and early Christianity. Understand the theological nuances of the ancient Gnostic movements. Gain insight into early church history, ancient Judaism, and the Platonic traditions. This collection will be valuable to anyone interested in the origins and impacts of the Gnostic texts.
