List of the treatises in the Nag Hammadi Coptic Library

In addition to the Nag Hammadi codices, this list contains four treatises found in the Berolinensis Gnosticus 8502, a papyrus codex currently kept in Berlin, in which there are two texts parallel to those found in the Nag Hammadi library.

In the following list, the first column gives the number of each codex along with the number of each text within the codices; the second column gives the first and last page of each text; the third gives the titles with the number of the corresponding volume in the «Textes» series of the BCNH; the fourth column, finally, gives the abbreviation for each text. For each codex the number of the corresponding concordance is also given.
