    [EBOOK / KINDLE] The Nag Hammadi Library By Anonymous It's all very interesting The Gnostics are often closer to what feels true than exoteric Christianity but at the same time some of it really does seem far fetched even if it is supposed to be symbolic

The Nag Hammadi Library

The Nag Hammadi Library summary Ý eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF read The Nag Hammadi Library 1988 edition supported by illuminating introductions to each document The library itself is a diverse collection of texts that the Gnostics considered to be related to their heretical philosophy in some way There are 45 separate titles including a Coptic translation from the Greek of two well known works the Gospel of Thomas attributed to Jesus' brother Judas and Plato's. The Nag Hammadi Library is one of the basic collection of documents that an historian or theologian must read in order to understand the Gnostic heresy It merits five stars because of its importance as a source for study The strange thing is that as a lay reader I found myself enjoying the book because of the excellent introductory notes that the translators provided for each documentIf nothing else those interested in Bible should read the Gospel of St Thomas which adds considerabe fuel to the debate on the possible existence of a missing Source ual that the four evangiles supposedly drew from Generally I think the lay reader will find in this collection whatever he or she were pre disposed to find As a undergraduate I was told that Gnosticism was an esoteric religion diametrically opposed in spirit to Christianty I found indeed that the joy and proclamation of a universal way to salvation open to all humanity of the New Testament was completely absent Indeed Gnosticism as it apears in the Nag Hammadi Library is a religion based on secret knowledge indeed for a small elite Most of the texts are highly neo platonic Hope is rare Jesus is a very diminished figure compared to his new Testament counterpart and the forces of evil are too powerfulI greatly enjoyed the final essayAfterword The Modern Relevance of Gnosticism by Richard Smith Smith s begins by suggesting that Gnosticism is just one of many forms of dualism He then argues that dualism has always had a strong appeal to writers citing Voltaire and William Blake as examples The 20 th Century was proving to be a particularly good period as Smith identifies Carl Jung Jack Kerouac Alan Ginsberg and Lawrence Durrell as being either dualists or pure Gnostics Having picked up this volume just after having finished Durrell s Alexandria uartet I must acknowledge that at least one in this group has been properly identified I suspect that he is right about the others too but my readings of these authors are far enough in the past that I cannot be sure The Nag Hammadi Library is an extremely important collection of texts For the lay person who has a read a great deal on the early Christian controversies this edition is great fun
