Spotlight: Nag Hammadi

Spotlight: Nag Hammadi

(4)
John Lash has studied the Nag Hammadi texts, a collection of thirteen ancient codices discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. The collection features important Gnostic scriptures written in Coptic that had been hidden for 1,600 years. Most of the material was found protected by sheepskin casings (such as pictured(1)). For more, see The Nag Hammadi Library(2) and The Gnostic Society Library(3).
