I mean he was not trying to theosophize the Gnostics, just that he was
so embedded in Theosophy he looked at all Philosophy with Theosophical
specticles. It was unconscious, not some kind of not to well hidden
agenda. His book on the world soul shows the same perspective, for
instance. To him Theosophy was a universal philosophy, applicable to
everything, and this pervaded his approach to Gnosticism, but did not
blunt his insight into it.
