      Friends,

      Have just received what looks like a superb new book by Dylan Burns:
      Apocalypse of the Alien God. Platonism and the Exile of Sethian
      Gnosticism, Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press 2014. Of
      particular interest to List members may be the chapters "Plotinus against
      his Gnostic Friends" and the Appendix: "Reading Porphyry on the Gnostic
      Heretics and Their Apocalypses".

      Dylan is one of a number of bright young scholars working on the
      intersection between Neoplatonism and Gnosticism (another that comes to
      mind is Zeke Mazur). These guys are going to produce a lot of good
      scholarship over the coming decades, as will Min-Jun Huh, who recently
      defended a very well-received Paris dissertation that contains the first
      translation of Boethius' first commentary on the Isagoge.

      Best, Mike
