Malcolm Peel, associate pro- fessor of religion at Coe, anc chairman of the religion anc philosophy department, is on the team of scholars who have translated most of the essays after years of delays that kept them from scholarly examina- tion. In connection with the ex- hibit, Dr. Peel will give a lec- ture, "When Heresy Was in at 2 p.m. next Sunday hi the library gallery. A coffee Will be held after the lecture. The gallery will be open from B a.m. to 11 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to. 9 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 11. p.m. on Sunday. The essays, called the Nag Hammadi Codices after the name of a- nearby: town in belonged to monks of the Gnostic faith who buried them in a jar near Hie Nile river years ago. They buried them, probably, to keep them from destruction during a time that Gnostics were .being persecuted. They were found in .1946. The Codices, some 13 books, were not rolled like scrolls, but were Sn Codex form like mod- ern, books. They were leather- bound, and written in Coptic, a form of late Egyptian written with Greek letters. Dr. Peel believes the signifi cance of the Nag Hammadi li brary is that it provides us will first-hand information about the thought of the Gnostics. Now with the TOWS of the Gnostics more fully understood, it may be possible" 'to determine wheth er it was some form of this teaching that was combatet jy the Apostle Paul in his let- :ers to Corinth and Colassae or >y the authors of the Gospel of Fohn and the Pastoral Epistles The Gnostics have been char- acterized as 'an off-beat, hippie- ike religious movement that swept the ancient world. "Gnos- icism was probably the most hreatening heretical movement which challenged the Church in ts early Dr. Peel ex- ilains. "The Nag Hammadi Co- ices may well prove as sig- nificant for illuminating Second entury Christianity as the lead. Sea Scrolls (also found n 1946) have been in shedding ght on the first pre-Christian entury." The exhibition consists of nine ianels of text and photographs n the manuscript discovery. It overs the site of the find, the irary itself, what is known of is discovery, how it was dated, and the significance of the Nag Hammadi manuscripts.. The exhibition, prepared and by the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity, Claremont, Calif., 5s at Coe un- .er the auspices of'the Smith- onian Institution Traveling Ex- libition service.
