ABOUT THE PISTIS SOPHIA

Pistis Sophia was the first of the Coptic Gnostic texts now known to be brought to public notice. The volume containing it, the Askew Codex, is named after its purchaser, A. Askew, a London doctor, a collector of old manuscripts who bought the codex from a bookseller, probably in London, in 1772. Nothing further is known about the previous history of the manuscript. The title Pistis Sophia was given to it by C. G. Woide, the first scholar to work on the text.

-Violet MacDermot, The Fall of Sophia

The Pistis Sophia relates the Gnostic teachings of the transfigured Jesus to the assembled disciples—including, in addition to the traditional male disciples, female disciples such as his mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Martha and Salome— on the Mountain of Olives, eleven years after the crucifixion....

Pistis translates as “Faith.” Sophia, which translates as “Wisdom,” is sometimes identified with the Holy Spirit.... She was envisaged as the Psyche of the world and the female aspect of Logos
