CODEX (CODEX BRUCIANUS)

Seventy-eight unbound leaves purchased in about 1769 in by the traveler James Bruce, eventually acquired by the in Oxford. Inscribed in Coptic, they date from the fourth or fifth century.

The leaves are probably the remains of two independent codices: 31 leaves containing the major portion of an untitled Gnostic work ( Untitled Text) and 47 leaves containing parts of another Gnostic work, the Books of Jeu. These texts were published by Carl Schmidt in 1892.
