thorough and extensive revaluation of early Christian
history is called for. The task is not limited to fresh
readings of the known sources and a close scrutiny of
the new texts, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls and the
Gnostic library of Nag Hammadi, in order to redefine
their appropriate place within the conventional picture
of early Christian history. Rather it is the conventional
picture itself that is called into question."
