Hypsiphrone (NHC XI, 4)

HYPSIPHRONE (NHC XI, 4)

A Gnostic revelation partially preserved in six fragments of the heavily damaged codex. Its title (partially preserved) occurs at the beginning. The opening passage indicates that the text contains a first-person report of a feminine revealer called Hypsiphrone (“high-minded”). Known only in this poorly preserved Coptic version, Hypsiphrone was originally composed in Greek, perhaps in second- or third-century Egypt.
