Hello and Merry Meet,
I am new here and very curous about the Gnostic tradition. I am a
student of Anthropology and Theology and have not had the opportunity
to study the gnostic tradition in itself. I have some knowledge of it
from work I have done on Jesus and his followers but only in reference.
I have heard of the Dead Sea Scrolls and am interested to learn more.
My spacific area of study as of yet has been women's roles in
prechristian traditions. I grew up Catholic and but after years of
study have chosen a wiccan path. I have followed the wheel of the year
since 1979 and I am comfortable in my path but would lkie to know more
about yours. If anyone could suggest a begginners book I would be very
grateful. Thank you Cynthia

- Hey Charlene
Welcome to the group. I do think it may be important for you to know
that Sylvia Browne is actually not related to the subject matter of
this group. I know she uses the term "Gnostic" but so do lots of
groups that are not related to each other.
Instead, this group is about traditional Gnosticism. This is nothing
against Sylvia, but for anyone here who may be interested in her
teachings rather than historical Gnosticism, here is a link to a
group that deals with them...

member there, Charlene)
Hope that helps anyone who is searching for something other than
what this group offers.
