    Aims and Scope

    The Exegesis on the Soul is the 6th text from Codex II of the Coptic manuscripts discovered at Nag Hammadi (Upper Egypt). The Coptic text has been newly edited and translated, and a detailed index has given access to its grammar.

    This volume presents the first German commentary on the text. It concentrates on the traditional historical reference points in the text, locating them in Platonic traditions of the soul, in biblical imagery, and in the Judaic-Christian traditions of Alexandria.
