Abstract [en]

In this article the problems of replacing the category Gnosticism with Christianity is discussed. Based on results from the author’s studies of The Gospel of Truth from Nag Hammadi the author suggests that a so-called acosmic attitude to the world might explain hitherto problematic passages of The Gospel of Judas.
