Item description for Mental Perception: A Commentary on Nhc Vi,4 the Concept of Our Great Power (Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies) by Frances E. Williams...

This title is a new edition and translation of the Nag Hammadi tractate, "The Concept of Our Great Power", with introduction and commentary. It suggests that the tractate is composite, and that its basis was a non-Christian Gnostic apocalyptic work whose background may have been Samaritan, and which emanated from a breakaway Simonian group who, unlike other Simonians, believed in celibacy. The tractate later received Christian additions. The last of these may refer to the career of Julian the Apostate. This is a fresh approach to the interpretation of this puzzling tractate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mental Perception: A Commentary on Nhc Vi,4 the Concept of Our Great Power (Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies)?

The Concept of Our Great Power  Nov 8, 2009
The Concept of Our Great Power is an instructional work addressed to a community or congregation by an anonymous author. It contains a markedly apocalyptic salvation history, and its outlook is such that, with certain reservations, it may usefully be termed Gnostic. Williams' treatment of this tractate is well researched and delivered with a clear sense of purpose, namely: to sharpen our focus on the importance this often overlooked text holds for gnostic studies. Readership: All those interested in Nag Hammadi studies, Gnosticism, Apocalyptic studies, Coptology, Christian origins, the history of religion, New Testament studies, Judaism, church history and ancient history.
