  • Product Description

This book is an attempt to delimit and analyse the Nag Hammadi apocalyptic corpus. Since the discovery of Nag Hammadi texts, scholarship has devoted many studies to several aspects of this literary corpus. However, even after more than 50 years of research, at least one of these aspects has been neglected by scholars: its apocalyptic corpus. Among the 52 Nag Hammadi treatises, there are five tractates that present the title of “apocalypse” in the manuscript. Other texts in this collection do not present the title of “apocalypse” in the manuscript, but they contain a few characteristics that are normally associated to the apocalyptic literary genre. There are also some writings that could be considered apocalypses, even if they do not present such title in the manuscript. And finally, this collection also contains certain writings that could be considered as being inspired by apocalyptic literature. Thus, the delimitation and analysis of such a corpus is more than usefull to research.
