The Gnostic Discoveries by Marvin W. Meyer Book Resume:

The Meaning of the Nag Hammadi, now in paperback opens the with the thrilling adventure story of the discovery of the ancient Papyrii at Nag Hammadi. Muhammad Ali, the fellahin, discovered the sealed jar, he feared that it might contain a jinni, or spirit, but also had heard of hidden treasures in such jars. Greed overcame his fears and when he smashed open the jar, gold seemed to float into the air. To his disappointment, it was papyrus fragmenst, not gold, but for scholars around the world, it was invaluable. Meyer then discusses the pre–Christian forms of wisdom that went onto influence what Christians believe today. In addition, some Nag Hammadi texts are attributed to Valentinus, a man who almost became Pope, and whose rejection changed the church in significant ways. Text by text, Meyer traces the history and impact of this great find on the Church, right up to our current beliefs and popular cultural fascination with this officially suppressed secret knowledge about Jesus and his followers.

The Nag Hammadi Library in English

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Nag Hammadi Library in English by James James McConkey Robinson,Richard Smith,Coptic Gnostic Library Project Book Resume:

First published in 1978, "The Nag Hammadi Library" was widely acclaimed by critics and scholars alike. Containing many of the writings of the Gnostics since the time of Christ, this was the work that launched modern Gnostic studies and exposed a movement whose teachings are in may ways as relevant today as they were sixteen centuries ago. Although some of the texts had appeared in other translations, the 1978 edition was the first and only translation of these ancient and fascinating manuscripts to appear in one volume. This new edition is the result of ten years of additional research, and editorial and critical work. Every translation has been changed or added to; many have been thoroughly revised. Unearthed in 1945 near the town of Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt, the texts literally begin where the Dead Sea Scrolls end. Their discovery is seen as equally significant, bringing to light a long-hidden well of new information, sources, and insights into early Judaism and the roots of Christianity. Each text is accompanied by a new and expanded introduction. Also included are a revised general introduction and an afterword discussing the modern relevance of Gnosticism, from Voltaire and Blake through Melville and Yeats to Jack Kerouac and science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. The translations and introductions to the Nag Hammadi texts are by members of the Coptic Gnostic Library Project, which includes such scholars as Helmut Koester, George McRae, and Elaine Pagels.

A Story of the Soul’s Journey in the Nag Hammadi Library

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Story of the Soul’s Journey in the Nag Hammadi Library by Ulla Tervahauta Book Resume:

Authentikos Logos (NHC VI,3), also known as Authoritative Teaching,is a little studied story of a soul’s descent and ascent in the Nag Hammadi library. With her book Ulla Tervahauta fills a gap in the scholarship and provide the first monograph-length study that has this writingas its primary focus. The aim is to find a place and context for Authentikos Logos within early Christianity, but Tervahauta also adds new insight into the scholarship of the Nag Hammadi Library and study of early Christianity. Contrary to the usual discussion of the Nag Hammadi writings from the viewpoint of Gnostic studies, she argues that Authentikos Logos is best approached from the context of Christian traditions of late ancient Egypt between the third and the fifth centuries.Tervahauta discusses the story of the soul’s journey in light of various Christian and Platonic writings. Also, she analyses the relationship of Authentikos Logos with the Valentinian Wisdom myth and suggests that no firm evidence connects the writing closely with Valentinian traditions. And although a Platonic mind-set can be assumed, the writing combines motifs in a unique manner. For example, the four epithets used in the writing – the “invisible soul”, the “pneumatic soul”, the “material soul”, and the “rational soul” – are not found thus combined elsewhere. Discussion of matter (hyle) is connected with Christian scriptural allusions and the focus is on ethics and the evilness of matter. The body, on the other hand, is the soul’s place of contest and progress. The Pauline term “pneumatic body” (1 Cor 15:44) is used allusively and from a Platonic perspective. With this book Ulla Tervahauta makes an important contribution to the study of early Christianity in late ancient Egypt by discussing a writing thatshows knowledge and creative combination of literary traditions that circulated in late ancient Egypt.

The Gnostic Bible

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Gnostic Bible by Willis Barnstone,Marvin Meyer Book Resume:

Gnosticism was a wide-ranging religious movement of the first millennium CE—with earlier antecedents and later flourishings—whose adherents sought salvation through knowledge and personal religious experience. Gnostic writings offer striking perspectives on both early Christian and non-Christian thought. For example, some gnostic texts suggest that god should be celebrated as both mother and father, and that self-knowledge is the supreme path to the divine. Only in the past fifty years has it become clear how far the gnostic influence spread in ancient and medieval religions—and what a marvelous body of scriptures it produced. The selections gathered here, in poetic, readable translation, represent Jewish, Christian, Hermetic, Mandaean, Manichaean, Islamic, and Cathar expressions of gnostic spirituality. Their regions of origin include Egypt, the Greco-Roman world, the Middle East, Syria, Iraq, China, and France. Also included are introductions, notes, an extensive glossary, and a wealth of suggestions for further reading.

L'Evangile de Thomas

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

L'Evangile de Thomas by Jean-Yves Leloup Book Resume:

L'Evangile selon Thomas fut découvert en 1945 aux environs de Nag Hammadi. C'est une collection de 114 logia ou "paroles nues" attribuées à Jésus le Vivant. Cet Evangile fut diversement reçu parla critique, si bien qu'à peine sorti de terre, il fut de nouveau recouvert par le sable mouvant des gloses et des polémiques... Mais la parole respirait sous la cendre... II importait d'y retrouver l'étincelle cachée afin d'y réveiller - comme au jour de Pentecôte - le feu de son âme. Cette nouvelle traduction, suivie de son commentaire, n'a pas d'autre but. Elle est dédiée à tous ceux pour qui Evangile signifie Amour et Connaissance, invitation à la Liberté.

L'Évangile de Marie

L'Évangile de Marie by Jean-Yves Leloup Book Resume:

Outre les Evangiles de Matthieu, Marc, Luc, Jean, on peut aujourd'hui méditer ceux de Philippe, Pierre, Barthélemy et, plus particulièrement, celui de Thomas. Mais il en est un, l'Evangile de Marie, qui demeure pratiquement ignoré du grand public. La première rédaction de cet Evangile, traduit et commenté ici par Jean-Yves Leloup, théologien orthodoxe et philosophe, se situerait aux alentours de l'an 150. Il s'agirait donc, comme les autres Evangiles, d'un des textes primitifs du christianisme. II est attribué à Myriam de Magdala, cette Marie-Madeleine qui fut le premier témoin de la Résurrection. Myriam y apparaît sous un jour nouveau. Elle n'est pas seulement la pécheresse dont nous parlent les Evangiles canoniques et les traditions récentes, mais aussi l'amie intime de Yeshoua, "l'initiée" qui transmet ses enseignements les plus subtils...
