Elaine Pagels, born February 13, 1943, Sun in Aquarius, Moon in Gemini, Ascendant Virgo, (11.3.6) née Hiesey, professor of Religion at Princeton University, best known for her studies and writing on the Gnostic Gospels. Her popular books include The Gnostic Gospels (1979), Adam, Eve and the Serpent (1988), The Origin of Satan (1995), Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas (2003), and Reading Judas: The Gospel of Judas and the Shaping of Christianity (2007). The efforts of the majority to destroy every trace of heretical ‘blasphemy’ proved so successful that, until the discoveries at Nag Hammadi, nearly all our information concerning alternative forms of early Christianity came from the massive orthodox attacks upon them.

Concise Epitome:  5.2 In the ballads of the ancestors tales of a most remote epoch were sung. In those times Handor would alternate light and darkness and its skies were often grey. (Nelle ballate degli antenati le narrazioni di un’epoca assai tarda si cantavano.In quei tempi Handor la luce al buio avvicendava e i suoi cieli sovente di grigio si tingevano.)
