Texts from the Askew Codex. The Askew codex was bought by the
British Museum in 1795, having been previously acquired by a Dr. Askew
from an unknown source. It is more commonly known by the name inscribed
upon it's binding, "Piste Sophiea Cotice". G.R.S. Mead suggests a more
appropriate name might be "Books of the Savior". The complete text
of Pistis Sophia in the translation of G.R.S. Mead is now provided here in
the Library. Please see Mead's
excellent introduction to Pistis Sophia for a detailed summary
of the contents of the manuscript.
