- Tom Saunders� ongoing effort to compile a �Gnostic Glossary� reminds me once
again that I have, for years, been dissatisfied with the way in which the
words �Gnostic� and �Gnosticism� are used. As a matter of fact, I�ve never
even been altogether comfortable with the way **I Myself** use those words!
I have always been plagued with the suspicion that there is something �not
quite right� in the way certain religions, literatures and philosophies are
arbitrarily characterized as �Gnostic.�
No doubt most of us have ready-to-hand �lists� (of one sort or another) that
serve as references for what constitutes �Gnosticism� and what is �Gnostic.�
I�d REALLY like to hear about the content of these lists.
