Codex Bruce Untitled Text - Coptic Wiki

CODEX BRUCE UNTITLED TEXT

A Christian Gnostic treatise the unfolding of the transcendent world and the material creation. It is usually regarded as the latest extant treatise of Sethian Gnosticism. A being called Setheus plays a demiurgic role in the text, and references are made in it to two Gnostic prophets, Nicotheus, whose “apocalypse” was read in Plotinus’ school in in the mid-third century (VP 16), and Marsanes, whose own apocalypse is partially preserved in X. Codex Bruce Untitled is strongly influenced by third-century Platonism. Extant only in Coptic, it was originally written in Greek, probably in late third- or early fourth-century Egypt.
