The Gospel of Philip is one of the most appealing of the Gnostic texts found at Nag Hammadi in Egypt in 1945. The source of Dan Brown's intriguing speculations about Mary Magdalene in his best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code, the Gospel of Philip contains a fascinating variety of material, ranging from esoteric interpretation of the gospels to fragments of Gnostic mythology, from a description of the mystical union that takes place in the bridal chamber to otherwise unrecorded sayings of Jesus. Smith's engaging commentary provides comparative material from Jewish, Christian, Gnostic and other contemporary sources, guides readers through the text's sometimes bewildering range of imagery and reveals previously unnoticed connections and understandings.
