Elaine Pagels

Knopf Doubleday, 1979

In her classic, award-winning book, Pagels, renown early church and late antiquities scholar, explains the significance of these long-suppressed Christian scriptures for our heritage and calls into question the canonization of biblical Scripture and establishment of church orthodoxy made by early church leadership.

Pagels argues for a new perspective on Christianity based on these non-canonical texts.  This book set the course for rethinking the origins of Christianity, both biblically and ecclesiastically, which continues to promise more research and hold a fascination today.
