Chapter Summary

This chapter provides transcriptions of the Coptic text of exegesis on the soul (Exeg. Soul) and gospel of Philip (Gos. Phil.) are based on a reading of the Facsimile Edition of Nag Hammadi Codex II together with the main critical editions. All divergences in the Coptic text from the editions of Layton, Sevrin, Krause, and Kulawik, in the case of Exeg. Soul, and of Layton, Schenke, Ménard, and till in the case of Gos. Phil., are noted in the apparatus. Only divergences from the Coptic text utilised in the present study are noted in the apparatus. The chapter aims to provide relatively literal translations of the Coptic, and have also in some cases chosen to show more than one possible translation of certain words, in order to highlight potential wordplays or to indicate instances where it has not been possible to decide between different translations.
