Re: [Gnosticism2] Re: Hello, new to the group
- I have heard about Gnosticism for quite some time now, just never really looked into it until recently. I stumbled across it in again in my theology research so I decided to persue the knowledge of it this time. I just recently purchased the Gnostic Bible, haven't gotten to read it yet because I am currently read two other books that I am in the middle of with my research, but can't wait to get into it. When I came across this group I decided to join to get some more insight on Gnosticism.Thanks for the welcome and I probably will have questions and will definately enjoy the discussions.Melissa

Feel free to ask questions, raise issues, explain your perspective,
and so on. So you are new to the subject? Lately there has been a
good number of popular books comming out that deal with Gnosticism,
such as the newly published Gospel of Judas, as well as regular
appearances of scholars who deal with the subject on TV programs,
especially on the History Channel. There have even been movies the
last few years that seem to conciously borrow from Gnostic thought.
Obviously some of these sources are more accurate and more genuinely
reflective of traditional Gnostic ideas than others, but all have
served to bring attention to Gnosticism.
Perhaps you can tell us a little about how you came to hear of
Gnosticism? Also, what about Gnosticism most interested you? Is there
anything in Gnostic thinking that you find particularly confusing or
are unsure about?
