- Sep 29, 2003Well, Magusadeptus, you may need to clarify for us. I have heard the
name applied to Bogimils, but I don't get the impression that this is
what you are talking about. I know that Epihpanius talks about two
different groups by that name (which he tries to draw together in
some way I can't remember... but that sounds typical), but I guess
niether of those groups are who you are talking about.
In any event, I am aware of no medieval groups that I would say are
technically "Gnostic" (with the possible exception of the Mandaeans,
but the jury is still out on that one), and I am really not familiar
with any Messalians besides the several different groups I already
mentioned. Maybe some of the other founders here know something, or
one of our many very knowledgable members can help.
