Summary This book contains the proceedings from the Codex Judas Congress held to discuss the newly-restored Tchacos Codex. Since this codex is a newly-conserved ancient book of Christian manuscripts which had yet to be discussed collaboratively by a body of scholars, this book is nothing less than a landmark in Gnostic studies
