The Nag Hammadi scriptures found in Egypt presented to the
world a wealth of heretofore undiscovered Gnostic texts, mainly
of the Coptic traditions.
The Archons, or Archai, are designations found in Gnosticism
for archangelic beings.
One of my favorite Gnostic scriptures has been 'The Hypostasis
of the Archons,' which describes the Garden of Eden as under
water. Adam and Eve are designated as creations of God's
thoughts as images on the water.
