The Gnostic Gospels
Edited by Elaine Pagels and Marvin Meyer
A superbly edited collection by the world's leading Gnostic scholars, this Folio edition opens the window on a remarkable and enlightening discovery.
In 1945, 13 papyrus books that had lain buried since the 4th century were discovered in an earthenware jar near Nag Hammadi, in Upper Egypt. These were the Gnostic Gospels, alternative Christian texts which challenge those of the New Testament at every turn. In this superb collection, the world's leading Gnostic scholars shed light on an exciting and controversial discovery.
