This is a Valentinian letter on resurrection. This edition contains a fresh translation and exposition of one of the writings from the Nag Hammadi Library. Its importance is that it provides the first Gnostic document devoted exclusively to the subject of individual eschatology.
The letter is one of the numerous writings from a religious library probably used by a fourth century Gnostic community of Sethian disposition. It was probably composed sometime prior to that century. The thought and vocabulary of Paul are found throughout it. It contains eight pages.
