EXEGESIS (NHC II, 6)

A Gnostic tale relating the fall of the from and her life in a brothel until she repents and is mercifully restored to heaven by the Father. The text contains a number of quotations from the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, and from Homer’s Odyssey. The title occurs at the end of the tractate. Extant only in Coptic, Exegesis was composed in Greek, probably in third-century Egypt.
