St. Sebastian


*The Dark Night of the Soul by the 16th century Spanish Carmelite mystic San Juan de la Cruz (St. John of the Cross)
*The Love That Dares to Speak its Name by the 20th century poet James Kirkup.

*The Gospel of Mary from the Papyrus Berolinensis 8502 (sometimes called the Akhmim Codex), which was discovered in Cairo in 1896. The codex also contains portions of two other Gnostic texts, the Sophia of Jesus Christ and the Apocryphon of John.
*The Pistis Sophia resembles the Gospel of Mary in many ways, but is a far lengthier tract (External Link).
