Chapter Summary

It is probably useful to examine the question of the sources and specifically to the Nag Hammadi discovery new. To what extent may be of a Jewish component in the new-found texts talking about. If we screened a catalog of the writings of Nag Hammadi, it falls on immediately that the Old Testament Scriptures and Jewish Pseudepigrapha are missing; which is the more remarkable, as on the other pagan Hermetica have been well received. In summary, we would like to say that the Jewish component in Gnosticism hasn't been very strong and one cannot find the origin of Gnosticism in Judaism of Palestine and the Diaspora. One should therefore not after a search of origin, but always takes into account the complex entity that is "syncretism" name. This therefore makes the work on this problem, in the beginning, we are silent so difficult, but so captivative.

Keywords: Jewish component; Gnosticism; syncretism; Old Testament; Nag Hammadi
