About the Presentation

In this talk, Richard will examine the collection of gnostic scriptures that were discovered at Nag Hammadi in Egypt in 1945. These scriptures had been hidden for 17 centuries and their discovery has set the Western world ablaze, with great implications for what we have known as Christianity and its early history.

His interests include Gnosticism and early Christianity, along with Taoism and Zen.
