Nag Hammadi-sabbaten och den platslösa kategorin: Religiös förändring och självbildens transformation under senantiken

Linjamaa, Paul LU (2013) In Chaos. Dansk-norsk tidsskrift for religionhistoriske studier 2013:II(60). p.109-134
Abstract
Many scholars and philosophers inspired by Antiquity, have commented upon a transformation of lived religion and a changing picture and technology of the Self during Late Antiquity. The Nag Hammadi Library contains a diverse body of thought and it is here argued that these texts are found in the epicentre of Late Antique conversion of religion and Self, containing important illustrations of new emerging ideals as well as the continuations of old concepts. From the perspective of the Sabbath, with its connection to sacrifice and creation, rest and contemplation (central religious themes undergoing changes), we survey a few fundamental motifs of Late Antique transformation.
