This paper examines the apocalyptic views of the Apocalypse of Adam, the fifth and final tractate of the Nag Hammadi Codex V, with a special attention given to the hymnic section about the thirteen 'kingdoms'. It concludes that this writing proposes a 'worldview' which is thoroughly 'apocalyptic' in the sense that it is the object of a revelation oriented towards an eschatological future.
