Pistis Sophia by G.R.S. Mead
Publication: 1955 John M. Watkins Publishing
The third impression of the heavily revised edition (and best edition) of Mead's translation of this important third century Gnostic text. George Robert Stowe Mead (1863 - 1933), was an English historian and writer who was a prominent member of the Theosophical Society, as well as the founder of the Quest Society. Mead's writings dealt mainly with Hermetica and Gnosticism and he is undoubtedly best known for his "Thrice Greatest Hermes", a massive landmark translation and collection of Trismegistic Literature still important today.
