Republic Plato 588a-589b (NHC VI, 5)

REPUBLIC PLATO 588A-589B (NHC VI, 5) A fractured and Gnosticizing Coptic translation of Socrates’ parable on the human soul in Book 9 of Plato’s Republic, a text quite popular in philosophical and religious circles. The translation was evidently produced in a Gnostic setting, probably in early fourth-century Egypt. GAWDAT GABRA Tags: Books
