Guide to the Nag Hammadi Library

There was reference to this poem from the gnostic gospels, "The Thunder, Perfect Mind," in this week's New Yorker article about Elaine Pagels. It is a divine poem in every way.

Nag Hammadi Library

The Nag Hammadi library is a collection of early Christian Gnostic texts discovered near the Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in 1945. Twelve papyrus codices buried in a sealed jar were found by a local peasant. Written in the Coptic language, the codices were comprised of fifty-two mostly Gnostic treatises, three works belonging to the Corpus Hermeticum, and a partial translation of Plato's Republic.
