REVELATIONS: ART, MUSIC, AND POLITICS  BY ELAINE PAGELS
Elaine Pagels is best known for research and publication involving a cache of over fifty ancient Jewish, Greek, and Christian texts discovered in Upper Egypt in 1945—including secret gospels suppressed by the church for nearly two millennia. While completing her Ph.D. at Harvard University, she participated with an international team of scholars to edit, translate, and publish several of these texts. Married to Heinz Pagels, Professor of Theoretical Physics at Rockefeller University, she lived in New York during the term, and summers in Aspen, Colorado, with her husband and their three children. After graduate school, she accepted a position as assistant professor at Barnard College and Columbia University and published two scholarly books and several articles before writing The Gnostic Gospels, which won the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Having received a MacArthur Prize Fellowship, she was invited to join the faculty at Princeton University, where she now teaches and engages in research. While continuing to write scholarly articles, she has published other books accessible to a wider audience, including Adam, Eve, and the Serpent: Sex and Politics in Early Christianity, (Random House, 1988). After her husband died in a Colorado hiking accident in 1988, she moved to Princeton with her children, and wrote The Origin of Satan: How Christians Came to Demonize Jews, Pagans, and Heretics (Random House, 1995); Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas (Random House, 2003) and Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation (Viking Penguin, 2012). Her next book, Why Religion? A Personal Story will be published this fall, in November 2018.
