  • I think it;s got great potential. From an educational point of view it already presants those interestered in the precanonical christian literature a very accessable place to start. I have not been able to compile it successfull on amd64 so I use a virtualized i386 running slackware. It does the job. I have told my peers in 'gnostic' studies whether they be of neo gnostic hue or more historical tendendcies of the scope of the translations availible. I rate this project as one of the best studies of early christian literature available. It a great toolset.

  • Thanks for Marcion, it's wonderful!
