Summary
  • Since the discovery of ancient lost gospels, secret books, treatises, and tractates in the Nile Valley near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, the study of Gnostic religion and its impact on Christianity, Judaism, and Greco-Roman religions has been fundamentally transformed. Gnosticism's influence on Western culture and tradition through the ages and up to modern times has been profound. In this definitive edition, an international team of esteemed scholars provide the most complete English translations of all the texts of this ancient mystical tradition, with introductory essays and extensive notes reflecting the latest scholarship-including the recently discovered Gospel of Judas
  • "The Nag Hammadi Scriptures includes nearly fifty texts that were read as sacred literature and gathered in collections found near Nag Hammadi and elsewhere in Egypt-hence the title of this volume. The texts published here, however, do not constitute scripture in the narrow sense of a closed canonical collection, as is the case with the Jewish scriptures, the New Testament, or the Qur'an. Rather, the documents from the Nag Hammadi library, the Berlin Gnostic Codex, and Codex Tchacos are scriptural in the broader sense of texts composed, read, translated, and copied as books recognized as inspired-and inspiring-for those seeking God. These and the other texts from the Nag Hammadi library invite us to reconsider the nature of our religious and philosophical heritage, the development of Christianity and the Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition, and the enduring questions raised by religious and philosophical inquiry."
