Gnosticism

Gnosticism is a modern scholarly construct used to discuss texts and groups that
adhered to a worldview characterized by  a distinction between a faulty creator-god and a
higher deity with whose otherworldly realm human beings enjoy kinship.


TEXTS AND PRIMARY RESOURCES

The Campbell Bonner Magical Gems Database

Date Converter for Ancient Egypt
Website that converts dates mentioned in the Greek and Demotic papyri  into Julian and corresponding Gregorian dates.

Gnostic Society Library
Collection of Gnostic and Gnosticism-related texts, including English-language translations of the Nag Hammadi Library, taken from Robinson (ed.) Nag Hammadi Library in English (NHLE).

Nag Hammadi Archive
One of the few resources about the codices themselves.

Bibliothèque Copte de Nag Hammadi
Home to the project governing the Francophone edition, translation, and publication of the codices. Many of the French translations are more recent and up-to-date with scholarship than those found in the NHLE, and so are worth consulting even by Anglophone scholars.
