Prayer Of Thanksgiving (NHC VI, 7) - Coptic Wiki

(NHC VI, 7)

A Coptic translation of a found in in a magical papyrus (P. Mimaut) and in Latin at the end of the Hermetic tractate Asclepius (41b). Its incipit (“This is the that they spoke”) suggests that it has been excerpted from a larger work.

The scribe of Codex VI probably inserted this here on the assumption that it was a suitable conclusion to the preceding tractate, The Discourse on the Eighth and Ninth (NHC VI, 6). This prayer, in in Egypt, probably in the second century, was presumably used in Hermetic conventicles.
