Nag Hammadi, a village in Upper Egypt, is best known for being the site where in December, 1945 thirteen leather-bound papyrus codices buried in a sealed jar were found by a local farmer, Mohammed Ali Samman. The writings in these codices comprised 52 mostly Gnostic tractates (treatises).

The contents of the codices were written in Coptic, though the works were probably all translations from Greek. Most famous of these works must be the Gospel of Thomas, of which the Nag Hammadi codices contain the only complete copy.

The Nag Hammadi codices are housed in the Coptic Museum in Cairo, Egypt, except for one (The Jung Foundation Codex).

Gospel of Thomas (Non-canonical, New Testament Apocrypha)

Gospel of Mary (Non-canonical, New Testament Apocrypha)
