The Nag Hammadi library (also known as the "Chenoboskion Manuscripts" and the "Gnostic Gospels") is a collection of early Christian and Gnostic texts discovered near the Upper Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in 1945. Thirteen leather-bound papyrus codices buried in a sealed jar were found by a local farmer named Muhammed al-Samman.

The "Lost Gospels" refer to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library, both discovered in the 1940s. The Nag Hammadi Library consists of writings found by two peasants who unearthed clay jars in 1945 in upper Egypt. These did not appear in English for 32 years, because the right to publish was contended by scholars, politicians, and antique dealers. The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in clay jars in Palestine by a goat herder in 1947, weathered similar storms. The first team of analysts were mostly Christian clergy, who weren't anxious to share material that frightened church leaders. As Dr. Hoeller shows, they rightly feared the documents would reveal information that might detract from unique claims of Christianity. Indeed, the Dead Sea Scrolls and Nag Hammadi Library both contradict and complement accepted tenets of the Old and New Testaments.

As to the connection with Jung, Dr. Hoeller states, "Jung knew that the one and only tradition associated with Christianity that regarded the human psyche as the container of the divine-human encounter was that of the Gnostics of the the first three centuries of our era. For this reason he called for a renewed appreciation of this ancient tradition, and particularly for a return to the Gnostic sense of God as an inner directing and transforming presence." Dr. Hoeller goes on in his preface, "His sympathetic insight into the myths, symbols, and metaphors of the Gnostics, whom by his own admission he regarded as long-lost friends, continues as the brightest beacon of our day..."

Chapters include such topics as Saintly Rebels: The People of the Scrolls, The Dancing Savior: The Myth of the Gnostic Christ and The Secret Sayings of Jesus: The Gospel of Thomas. The book also includes a thorough notes section as well as an index.

  • No so much on Jung, but excellent on Gnosticism. One of the best books on Gnosticism I've read and I've read many. His translation of the Hymn of the Pearl is the best I've seen. I highly recommend it.

  • Hoeller opened up an understanding of Jung for me and places Jung's thoughts clearly in context among Gnostic and religious traditions. It feels much as when the book quotes Barbara Hannah "I felt as if I had found a circle of friends who understood me."

  • Dr. Hoeller has wet my appetite for further study of The Dead Sea Scrools and the Nag Hammadi Library. His book satisfies many of my questions regarding content in the Old and New Testaments of The Bible--expanding my view of Christianity. I have a greater sense of how myth plays a part in explaining the deeper reality of my life here on earth.

  • Excellent!

  • Cool

  • This is another point of view to contemplate. It is great!

  • This was given as gift to a friend. I have not read it, but they did and loved it. They like to read anything that Jung wrote.
