- Hey all, I am new here.
This is maybe not the best first post, but I did want to bring
something up that is a bit off topic here.
Some time ago there was a "Gnostic" lexicon posted in this Yahoo
Group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gthomas/message/6023 . I wanted
to state, for the record, that roughly half of this list of terms is
directly from my own list
I do wish to point out that this lexicon was created for a dual
purpose, and deals not only with "Gnostic" terms, but also terms used
in other Platonist (Neoplatonist) movements. The reason for this dual
source list is that I ran separate Groups dealing both with
Gnosticism, and with "Ovidian Love" (here is an example of what I
mean http://www.geocities.com/pmcvflag/ ) and later Platonic
The poster of this revised lexicon, Tom, is welcome to continue using
the portions from my own lexicon if he will only post credit for my
portion and a link to my page. Anyone else who wishes to use this,
please ask first.
