Item description for The Gospel According to Thomas by Antoine Guillaumont, H. Ch. Puech, G. Quispel, W. Till & Y. Abd Al-Masih...

In 1945 thirteen volumes, or fragments of volumes, written on papyrus were found by chance near Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt. It appears that they had come from the library of a gnostic community and together comprised 49 works, written in Coptic and most of them unknown. None of the works included in the discovery has been so much discussed and have created so much interest as "The Gospel according to Thomas". It is in fact a collection of Logia, a harvesting of 114 "Sayings of Jesus" together with a prologue which stresses the esoteric character of the sayings and attributes their recording and preservation to the apostle Didymus Jude Thomas. Many of the sentences are identical with Logia of the Synoptic Gospels or are closely related to them. Other sayings on the contrary are extracanonical. Among these are certain "agrapha" which were already known or can now be recognized in ancient and medieval literature from patristic, gnostic, Manichaean, or even Catharist sources. Finally, the collection comprises many Logia. This reprint of the original 1959 edition presents the Coptic text based on a minute examination of the manuscript, together with as faithful a translation as possible.
