This is a sequel to the immensely useful Nag Hammadi Bibliography 1948-1969, which was the first volume to appear in the Nag Hammadi Studies series. The volume provides a complete integration of Supplements I-XXIV to the Bibliography as published in Novum Testamentum 1971-1997, with additions and corrections. In total the update contains over 6092 entries.
Nag Hammadi and Gnostic studies continue to be of critical importance for the study of ancient religions in the Graeco-Roman world and for the study of the world of early Christianity, and the present bibliography provides an indispensable reference tool for work in these fields.

The Coptic Gnostic Library Online is now available on our new platform, Scholarly Editions, in a completely new design, and with enhanced search options throughout the entire publication. Brill's Scholarly Editions is designed to provide an uninterrupted reading experience and to display parallel texts side by side. From 1 January 2022 onwards, the parallel run will end and the Coptic Gnostic Library Online will only be accessible on Brill's Scholarly Editions platform.

The Coptic Gnostic Library is the only authoritative edition of many of the Coptic writings of the Gnostics from the first centuries AD. It was originally published by Brill in fourteen hardback volumes as part of the Nag Hammadi (and Manichaean) Studies series between 1975 and 1995, under the general editorship of James M. Robinson.

The Coptic Gnostic Library contains all the texts of the Nag Hammadi codices, both in the original Coptic and in translation. Each text has its own introduction, and full indexes are provided. The Coptic Gnostic Library is the starting point for all research into ancient Gnosticism. It is the result of decades of dedicated research by the most distinguished international scholars in this field.

The Coptic Gnostic Library continues where the Dead Sea Scrolls left off. Our main sources of information for the Gnostic religion are the so-called Nag Hammadi codices, written in Coptic. These were unearthed in 1945 near the town of Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt. The texts literally begin where the Dead Sea Scrolls end. Their discovery is considered equally significant as the Dead Sea Scrolls themselves, bringing to light a long-hidden wealth of information and insights into early Judaism and the roots of Christianity. Furthermore, these writings clearly show that the Gnostic religion was not only a force that interacted with early Christianity and Judaism in their formative periods, but also a significant religious movement in its own right.

Features and Benefits
- Online edition of the original 14 hardback Nag Hammadi Codices
- Complete and unabridged
- Facing Coptic texts and English translations, Introductions, Notes, and Indexes
- Instant and fully searchable access to the equivalent of more than 5,000 pages of print.
The Nag Hammadi Bibliography Online (NHBO) is a cross-searchable database of books, articles and reviews, which contribute to the study of Gnosticism and early Christianity. The main objective of the NHBO is facilitating the work and international collaboration of all scholars working in this field.

The NHBO succeeds and builds upon the comprehensive but now outdated three-volume Nag Hammadi Bibliography by the late D.M. Scholer. In addition to the data collated by Scholer, the new NHBO includes bibliographic data from 2013 onwards, as well as useful abstracts of every single entry, keywords, and classification data.

Features and Benefits
- Contains about 13,000 entries covering almost all books, journal articles and book articles in various languages on the Nag Hammadi Library
- Two installments per year (about 400 new entries).
- Includes the three Nag Hammadi Bibliography volumes by the late David Scholer
- Instant and cross-searchable
- Includes abstracts and keywords, which will also be added later to Scholer entries from before 2007.

In future, NHBO will also include links to search engines and online publications, and will provide the capability to export texts. The NHBO will be updated annually in order to provide Nag Hammadi scholars with an accurate and up-to-date online resource. In addition, missing bibliographic data for the years 2007 to 2012 will be added to the NHBO from December 2016 onwards. Once this task is complete, the NHBO team will also add the abstracts to the publications included in Scholer’s Bibliography.

The NHBO has three main priorities:
1. Compiling the complete data on all academic publications on Nag Hammadi from 2013 onwards.
2. Filling the hiatus between 2007 and 2012, between Scholer’s Bibliography and the NHBO.
3. Completing Scholer’s data with the addition of abstracts and keywords to the existing materials.

NHBO’s timeline:
1st phase to cover data and publications from 2007 to 2020:
December 2016: publication for the years 2012 to 2015
December 2017: publication for the years 2011 and 2016
December 2018: publication for the years 2010 and 2017
December 2019: publication for the years 2009 and 2018
December 2020: publication for the years 2008 and 2019
December 2021: publication for the years 2007 and 2020
2nd phase (2022 to 2026) to cover data and publications from 2021 to 2025 and to add abstracts, complementary information, and links to the data from Scholer’s Bibliography.
