In this lecture, Gilles Quispel recounts the story of the Jung Codex, which is part of the famous Nag Hammadi library of Gnostic writings discovered in the Egyptian desert in the 1940s. He illuminates his own personal role in its acquisition along with C.G. Jung. Dated around the 2nd-3rd century AD, the Valentinian writings included in the Jung Codex (in particular the Gospel of Truth which may have been written by the famous Christian Gnostic Valentinus) show that Gnosticism was grounded in a profound religious experience. Using Jung’s psychology, Quispel explains that this personal experience is the discovery of the self, knowledge of which radically changed for Gnostics the understanding of the interconnection of history and the universe.
