ancient Gnostics might have conceived "Gnosis." Of course, without
their writings we could not learn what they thought or experienced,
nor did they convey this information without a theoretical setting of
some sort. We don't have absolute, firsthand knowledge of all their
initiatory study and practices; however, their writings exhibit more
than a passing familiarity with Platonist philosophy, for instance.
You mention that written works have their place. If I may ask, what
place is that? If Truth is found "only through experiential Gnosis,"
what does the adjective "experiential" encompass? From your reading
of the NHL you mention and other literature, what would the ancients
take this to mean?
Do you agree or disagree with the "Attributes of Gnosis" outlined in
our group files section regarding the historical Gnostics?
