Nag Hammadi codices: a new interpretive approach

Nag Hammadi codices: a new interpretive approach (Past Horizons: Adventures in Archaeology, 9 February 2012)

Abstract:
The texts of the Nag Hammadi codices have commonly been treated as mere witnesses to Gnostic texts in Greek mainly from the second and third centuries. A new research project will now challenge this approach by interpreting the Coptic texts of these codices within the context of their probable production and use in fourth- and fifth-century Egyptian monasticism.
