Archive Notes

A wide range of texts -- some showing Gnostic tendancy or influence -- survived within the Christian tradition outside of the New Testiment canon. This section of the library offers a large collection of these documents. Note that texts discovered in the Nag Hammadi collection are listed in the Nag Hammadi Library section, and are not included here.  Texts of a primarily Gnostic character are cataloged in the Gnostic Scriptures and Fragments section of the Library

Although this is a fairly comprehensive catalog of texts, several additional documents not presented here can be found at the Wesley Center Online Noncanonical Homepage or in the collection of the early Christian writings at New Advent -- both are excellent resources.
