The Nag Hammadi Library

The Nag Hammadi library is a collection of early Christian Gnostic texts discovered near the Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in 1945. Twelve papyrus codices buried in a sealed jar were found by a local peasant. Written in the Coptic language, the codices were comprised of fifty-two mostly Gnostic treatises, three works belonging to the Corpus Hermeticum, and a partial translation of Plato's Republic.
