  1. Thanks for this wonderful article!
    You alluded to Theophilus’ formulation of the Trinity, God/Word/Wisdom, (and elsewhere in Ad Autolocus, clarified as God/Logos/Spirit). The distinct prominence of the association between Wisdom and the Holy Spirit anciently makes me wonder if you think the late Silvanus author really did set the record straight on the divine feminine. Or might we be missing something today?

  2. I very much enjoyed your article. It has been many years since I’ve read much about the Nag Hammadi. Your quote from Stephen H. Webb was very interesting. Smith vs. Calvin. I looked up Calvin and he was very well educated, so comparing the two is quite the compliment to Joseph Smith, the “ignorant Plow-boy”. I am sure Calvin would not be please by the comparison.
    Thank you!
