Description
In the first few centuries after Christ, the Gnostics became a serious rival of the emerging Christian church. Also the author of The Cathars and The Knights Templar, Sean Martin quotes from the Gnostics' scriptures and explores their unconventional beliefs, including that the world was created by an evil god; that Jesus and Satan were brothers; and that God contained a feminine aspect known as Sophia. In this history, Sean Martin also explores how Gnostic ideas contributed to the Renaissance and the New Age movement, as well as influencing such authors as William Blake, W.B. Yeats, and Philip K. Dick. This book is part of a series introducing Christian sects that flourished alongside the mainstream Church, only to be persecuted as heretics. Each book features a discussion of the groups' core beliefs, a history of the movement, and an assessment of its influence upon later culture.
