American writer and biblical scholar, author of books on the Gnostic gospels and Satan, "The Gnostic Gospels," 1973.

The daughter of a biologist, she went to Stanford and Harvard to become a Professor of Religion at Barnard in 1970. One of a team of scholars assembled to study the great find of 1945, 52 scrolls written by the Gnostics, she wrote a popular account of the somewhat obscure language to make the information more accessible to a general audience. The critical reviews of her work were mixed. In 1978 the formal translation was published.

Hisey married theoretical physicist Heinz R. Pagels 6/07/1969.
