The Coptic Gnostic Library Online

Connect to Coptic Gnostic Library Online

Description
The Coptic Gnostic Library Online contains all the texts of the Nag Hammadi codices, both in the original Coptic and in translation. Each text has its own introduction, and full indexes are provided. The main sources of information for the Gnostic religion are the so-called Nag Hammadi codices, written in Coptic. These were unearthed in 1945 near the town of Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt.

The Coptic Gnostic Library is an authoritative edition of many of the Coptic writings of the Gnostics from the first centuries AD. It was originally published in fourteen volumes as part of the Nag Hammadi (and Manichaean) Studies series between 1975 and 1995.
