The Thunder: Perfect Mind

Many literary experts contend that one of the greatest poems in history is the Nag Hammadi library’s The Thunder, Perfect Mind. We explore this enigmatic but poignant text for timeless insights on the dignity of all humans and liberation from oppression. Who exactly is the divine but tragic female protagonist of this work? What is the background behind Thunder that ignited a unique message of individuality? Is it even Gnostic or a general treatise on ultimate awakening?
