The Dialogue of the Savior is an intriguing document amalgamating sayings of the Lord, cosmological fragments and other materials from different origins. A close analysis of its major ideas shows a Valentinian origin, as M. Krause once suspected. Addressing first the issue of finding valid criteria for the identification of Valentinian documents, the article then seeks to establish the Valentinian character of the Dialogue of the Savior by comparing it to patristic and Nag Hammadi sources. Some discrepancies between this version of Valentinianism and the patristic accounts are best explained as doctrinal accommodations toward the emerging orthodoxy.
