by W. C. van Unnik Professor of Theology
In the University of Utrecht
Fourteen years ago, at Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt, a large collection of Coptic documents was discovered in a sealed urn. They proved to be Gnostic in character. In this survey Professor van Unnik explains something of the importance of this find as the first direct evidence available on early Gnosticism and its struggle with orthodox Christianity.

by Max Gluckman
Professor of Social Anthropology in the University of Manchester
Les Rites de Passage by Arnold van Gennep, ' one of the most seminal books in our history," has after more than fifty years been translated into English. Professor Gluckman considers its impact on the study of human societies, and some of the questions about Western as well as primitive peoples which van Gennep enabled others to raise.
