Introduction to Gnosticism

The first textbook on the fascinating but often obscure topic of Gnosticism.
Explanation of relationship between these texts and the New Testament.
Diagrams of complicated cosmologies help students visualize concepts.
Glossary of technical terms / Assists students with the technical terms of the original sources.
Tables that compare and contrast similar texts / Many of the Nag Hammadi texts appear similar, but contain significant differences for interpretation and comprehension. Tables simplify these similarities and differences for students.
Explanation of philosophical movements in the Roman Empire (Platonism, Stoicism, etc.) and the social history of Christianity shows how these texts reflect ancient concerns and arguments, to put them in an explanatory context.
Images of the ancient manuscripts themselves / Looking at the fragmentary state of the original manuscripts highlights how professional textual scholars do their work.
Discovered in Egypt in 1945, the fascinating and challenging Nag Hammadi writings forever changed our understanding of early Christianity. State-of-the-art and the only volume of its kind, Introduction to "Gnosticism": Ancient Voices, Christian Worlds guides students through the most significant of the Nag Hammadi texts. Employing an exceptionally lucid and accessible writing style, Nicola Denzey Lewis groups the texts by theme and genre, places them in the broader context of the ancient world, and reveals their most inscrutable mysteries.

Ideal for use in courses in Early Christianity/Origins of Christianity, Christianity to 1500, Gnostic Gospels, Gnosticism, Early Christian Writings, Orthodoxy and Heresy, and New Testament Studies, Introduction to "Gnosticism" is enhanced by numerous pedagogical features, including images of the manuscripts, study and discussion questions, annotated bibliographies, tables, diagrams, and a glossary.
