What Is Gnosticism?

Book - 2003
Rate this:
A distinctive Christian heresy? A competitor of burgeoning Christianity? A pre-Christian folk religion traceable to Oriental syncretism? How do we account for the disparate ideas, writings and practices that have been placed under the Gnostic rubric? To do so, Karen King says, we must first disentangle modern historiography from the Christian discourse of orthodoxy and heresy that has pervaded - and distorted - the story.
