Alphabetical Index


Several of the major texts in the Nag Hammadi collection have more than one English translation; where more than one translation is available, we have listed the translators' names in parenthesis below the name of the text. Texts marked with the {*} had more than one version extant within the Nag Hammadi codices; often these several versions were used conjointly by the translators to provide the single translation presented here.

All translations of texts here presented have undergone some modification, editing and minor revision for presentation in this internet edition. For academic use, always read and reference the standard print editions. The International Edition of The Nag Hammadi Scriptures (published in 2007) provides vastly improved translations for most of these texts, and is highly recommended.
