Editorial Symbols

I have followed the Nag Hammadi Library standard for typographical symbols in this file. Text contained within [square brackets] indicates a damaged portion of the manuscript where the translators have attempted a reconstruction. Text within (parentheses) indicates comments or text added by the translator for clarification purposes. Text within <pointed brackets> indicates a scribal error (spelling, grammatical, etc) in the original, where the translator has made a correction. Text within {funky brackets} indicates superfluous text added by the scribe.
