    Beyond righteousness and transgression2011In: Philosophy and the end of Sacrifice: Comparative and Phenomenological Approaches, Stockholm: Almqvist & Wiksell, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    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.

    Bortom vägs ände, eller klarsyntheten som förblindade: En analys av en så kallad akosmisk etik i Sanningens evangelium från Nag Hammadi2012In: Svensk exegetisk årsbok 77, Uppsala: Uppsala exegetiska sällskap , 2012, Vol. 77, p. 225-254Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In earlier scholarship a simplified connection between Gnostic mythology and ethics was presupposed. One assumed that the Gnostic myth would result in libertinism or ascetism. The last decades this simplified view successfully has been challenged, but at the same time the connection between myth and ethics has been blurred or totally obliterated. In this article the scholarly debate is summarized and criticized and a new proposal for the connection between the myth of the Gospel of Truth and the ethics that is advocated for in the text is put forward.

    Leaving Religion in antiquity2019In: Handbook of Leaving Religion / [ed] Daniel Enstedt, Göran Larsson and Teemu T. Mantsinen, Brill Academic Publishers, 2019, p. 43-54Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Too often, ancient persons have been seen as uncritically religious. From such perspective, leaving religion in Antiquity is deemed to be a theme of no importance. In this chapter, the notion that more or less everyone in Antiquity were religious is challenged. We first try to understand how such a perspective has evolved. After a reflection of recent trends in the sociology of religions, the need of rethinking the above-mentioned perspective is argued for. As a case study, Euripides’s drama Heracles is discussed. We suggest that the study of this drama and of other important texts and artifacts might prosper from a new look in which leaving religion is a reasonable perspective among others hitherto established ones.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article a new attempt to interpret and translate some Coptic terms on page 19 of the Gospel of Truth from Nag Hammadi Codex 1 is put forward. Thereby the author takes the first step on the way to describe the initiation of the Gnostic Christian from what God is not onto a deeper knowledge about what the Godhead instead represents.
