In this course, students will discover that a female divine Savior was among a few other Saviors who helped the early Christ followers. The Thought of Norea, found in the Nag Hammadi texts in 1945, not only indicates the reality of this female Savior, but in her divine-human state, she illustrates for humanity how her divinity might be attainable by others.

  • Discover Norea’s Savior-Relatives: Seth, Christ, and Sophia
  • Learn from Norea how the divine Mind can become manifest in the human experience
  • Challenge yourself to consider a female Savior in your 21st-century life
  • Expand your understanding of Biblical times 
The Thought of Norea, a second-century text from the Nag Hammadi Library, invites some intriguing parallels with other human-divine beings of the period.

 Norea finds herself in a helpless situation in which she pleads for divine help. Her prayers are heard, and she inherits the ‘First Mind,’ by which she is able to practice self-generation. She now joins the other imperishable ones and speak with words of life. By comparison with the other Saviors of her time, she has remarkable strength, and as a female confronts both ancient and modern patriarchal attitudes.

Only a few scholars have seriously studied this relatively recent discovery, and participation in the course contributes to the world’s appreciation of a female savior who could benefit the world today.
