Synopsis

Comment devient-on Pretre du Tres Haut? Rien de plus aise que d'interroger Melchisedek lui-meme, puisqu'il est eternel, comme son sacerdoce. Entre l'apocalypse de Gamaliel, qui fut a l'origine de sa vocation, et les revelations de mysterieux messagers, qui l'assurent de vaincre a la fin des temps toutes les puissances de ce monde opposees a son ministere, Melchisedek celebre sous nos yeux la liturgie du Grand Pretre celeste: il s'offre en action de graces au Pere du Tout avec tous les siens; il recoit et dispense un bapteme d'eau qui inonde de lumiere celeste et ramene a leurs origines transcendantes les fils de Seth. Demeurant sur terre de l'origine a la fin des temps, il est le maillon le plus proche d'une longue chaine de remontee des ames lumineuses. Par ses nombreuses references christologiques, ses positions antidocetes et son exegese paradoxale de l'Epitre aux Hebreux, ce traite represente un cas extreme de christianisation de la gnose sethienne. Le texte copte etabli par Wolf-Peter Funk ameliore substantiellement celui de l'Editio Princeps (1981).

L'introduction de Jean-Pierre Mahe montre la coherence de cet ecrit, qui, sous une apparence apocalyptique, est en fait essentiellement liturgique et communautaire; elle en precise les liens avec la tradition sethienne. Tout en resolvant les nombreuses difficultes que pose la lecture d'un texte extremement lacunaire, le commentaire de Claudio Gianotto eclaire l'interpretation gnostique du personnage de Melchisedek et articule ses rapports avec le Christ des Evangiles et le Sauveur celeste.
