The Nag Hammadi Library (Nag Hammadi Scriptures and the Gnostic Gospels). The site includes the Gnostic Society Library with the complete Nag Hammadi. The discovery and translation of the Nag Hammadi library, completed in the 's, has provided impetus to a major re-evaluation of early Christian history and. 1 H. Lundhaug – L.

If you would like to see the ancient manuscripts themselves, digital images of the original Nag Hammadi Codices are available online at the Claremont Colleges Digital Library. When analyzed according to subject matter, there are roughly six separate major categories of writings collected in the Nag Hammadi codices:.

Writings of creative and redemptive mythology , including Gnostic alternative versions of creation and salvation: For an in-depth discussion of these, see the Archive commentary on Genesis and Gnosis. Observations and commentaries on diverse Gnosti c themes, such as the nature of reality, the nature of the soul, the relationship of the soul to the world: Liturgical and initiatory texts: The Gospel of Philip , listed under the sixth category below, has great relevance here also, for it is in effect a treatise on Gnostic sacramental theology.

Writings dealing primarily with the feminine deific and spiritual principle, particularly with the Divine Sophia: Writings pertaining to the lives and experiences of some of the apostles: Scriptures which contain sayings of Jesus as well as descriptions of incidents in His life: This leaves a small number of scriptures of the Nag Hammadi Library which may be called "unclassifiable.


Lacunae are also present in most of these scriptures — in a few of the texts extensive sections have been lost due to age and deterioration of the manuscripts. The most readily comprehensible of the Nag Hammadi scriptures is undoubtedly The Gospel of Thomas , with The Gospel of Philip and the The Gospel of Truth as close seconds in order of easy comprehension.

Thankfully, these texts were all very well preserved and have few lacunae. There are now several published editions and translations of most of these scriptures available; the standard complete edition is the The Nag Hammadi Scriptures, edited by Marvin Meyer, published in To help place the Nag Hammadi materials into a better focus, the Library has collected a series of introductory lectures and commentaries by Dr.

The Sorrow of Sophia: MP3 format, 80 min. Texts in the Collection: An Overview of the Nag Hammadi Scriptures When analyzed according to subject matter, there are roughly six separate major categories of writings collected in the Nag Hammadi codices: The two trees, it turns out, were more than a metaphor for good and evil in Manichaean discourse: besides representing the presence of these opposites in the word, and especially in human beings, they were seen as the cosmogony in its primordial condition, and it is therefore not surprising that Manichaeisms detractors were quick to seize on the paradigm.

Hands and Imposition of Hands moves to Manichaean liturgical practice. The term hand or hands appears frequently in Manichaean documents, with the right hand holding special significance.

Right hands were clasped in greeting as elsewhere in the ancient world ; but for Manichaeans this gesture evoked their cosmogonical myth, and it was the right hand that was imposed as a liturgical action, one also stemming from the cosmogony and essential for admitting qualified persons to the rank of Elect, as well as for mandating Elect to a position in the Manichaean hierarchy.

The imposition of hands did not, it xviii would seem, play any part in healing rites among Manichaeans, since their view of the body did not include an interest in keeping the body alive.

Yet healing there was, as Healing and the Physician shows. Mani himself is presented by Manichaeans as a healer, and this sometimes in a physical sense. Moreover, healing language may at times have applied to spiritual cures; but some Manichaean texts suggest that it also had the cure of bodily ills in view despite the Manichaean notion of the physical bodys demonic origins and the apparent repudiation of medical treatment.

This seeming paradox is resolved if we remember that the bodies of the Elect were seen as vehicles of salvation, that is, of release of divine light from matter. It would have been desirable, therefore, to keep those bodies at their salvific task for as long as possible: hence the prayers we sometimes run across for bodily as well as spiritual healing. The final item in this section turns to a dual question much discussed since the discovery of Gnostic texts at Nag Hammadi in Egypt in Since we know that Manichaeism borrowed from other faith systems, do any of these texts show influences by or upon Manichaeism?

This paper discusses possible Jesus-sayings that might be reflected in Manichaean texts, with the focus on three suggested by Wolf-Peter Funk. A comparison of these and other possible allusions to the Gospel of Thomas as we have it does not wholly support the latter as a direct source for those allusions.

However, the Gospel of Thomas and Manichaean texts could have drawn from a common source; or the latter could have mined other collections of Jesus sayings. The scholarly inattention is a curious oversight, given the place that Manichaeism seems to have set for female figures and real women , and the attention that scholars have lavished on women in the Judaeo-Christian scriptures and in Gnostic movements.

Thus it was faute de mieux that I authored Prolegomena in at the time there simply was no comparable study, though what I then wrote was brief and meant as a prelude to further studies.

(Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies 69) J. Kevin Coyle Manichaeism and Its Legacy 2009.pdf

Yet, despite additional work since by Madeleine Scopello and Majella Franzmann, the assertion of this preliminary study still holds true: an introduction in-depth investigation of female figures indeed, of the feminine in Manichaeism still wants doing. Prolegomena attempts to define the parameters of that extended investigation, the hermeneutical considerations to be kept in mind when undertaking it, and where future investigative avenues may lie.

Next come two studies, separated by a dozen years, on whether the Mary Magdalene of the Christian gospels figured in Manichaean hagiography. This is no small task, given that references there to Mary do not clearly refer to the same individual any more than they do in the gospels, New Testament pseudepigrapha, or Gnostic texts.

In the first study I look chiefly at the identity of various persons named Mary in the Coptic Manichaean psalter of all extant Manichaean writings, the one where the name Mary most often appears. There, at least, Mary of Magdala is sometimes unequivocally present, as the ideal believer entrusted with rallying the Eleven to Jesusher primary task.

In a conference in New York was the welcome occasion to revisit the Mary question. Rethinking the Marys goes over my earlier assertions, then gives a summary of scholarship on the Magdalene figure that appeared in the interval, including reactions to my earlier study.

In the later item I underscore that, whether or not allusions to Marihamme in Manichaean Coptic texts refer to Mary of Magdala or possibly Mary of Bethany , in no way could they refer to the New Testaments Mary of Nazareth.

The last article in this section concentrates on the role of women in spreading Manichaeism in Roman territory.

Starting with a brief overview of Manichaeism, especially its spread from its birthplace into Roman territory, it goes on to present virtually everything we know to date about the place of women in that westward movement. It also discusses factors that might have drawn women to Manichaeism in the first place.

In the first of the seven contributions to this section, Augustin et le manichisme, I offer a short account of the Catholic Augustines first formal response to his former faith, mediated through the twin treatises De moribus ecclesiae catholicae and De moribus Manichaeorum. The following two items provide sharper focus to these treatises: Augustin chrtien Rome examines the first in detail, noting how it was undertaken shortly after Augustines baptism xx and while he was sojourning in Rome for a second time.

In addition to information on the date and place of writing, this item discusses Augustines motivation for writing the first treatise, before it moves to a detailed account of its content.

There the neophyte Augustine presents the notion of God as he understands it in those early post-baptismal days , the collaboration between faith and reason, the revelatory value of both biblical Testaments, the four cardinal virtues as the foundation for ethics, and the ascetical life. He does this to affirm what his Catholic readers should believe and practise, but also to prepare for the sister treatise, where he will attack Manichaeism especially its practices more directly.

But how much did Augustine really know of Manichaeism at this stage of his life? That is the subject of the next entry, which focuses on what Augustine knew while he was a Manichaean rather than on what he might have gleaned after departing from the religion.

As a Hearer, he would not have had access to all that was made available to the Elect; but he certainly knew the basic tenets of the Manichaean religion as those were propagated in Roman Africa and Italy especially the cosmogony and its corollary, the explanation of evil. No doubt he listened to readingsand possibly readfrom works composed by Manis followers, even from the New Testament.

He knew of the Manichaean predilection for Paul and the gospel, especially those passages that resonated with them a knowledge he employed to advantage in the De moribus treatises. He was also aware of Manichaean explanations for those and other biblical passages, and of Manichaean religious imagery.Good communication, quickly shipped, smooth cross-border transaction Fabulous seller.
