Gnosticism or Gnosis is far more than an ancient religious movement with Christian, Jewish, and pagan followers. It is a living presence today, in many religions and also completely outside formal religion. This book explores ancient and modern Gnosticisms and their relations with each other.

“Gnosticism, an early form of Christianity that was anciently suppress d as heresy, possessed an attitude and set of concerns that have striking affinities to the psychology of C. G. Jung… This book’s focus on the experiential dimension of Gnosticism, where the religion was actually lived, is a refreshing change of pace.”
– Dan Merkur, Author of Powers Which We Do Not Know

“This book is a concatenation of sparks of religious light… Gnosticism is to be understood as the ongoing formulation of freshly imagined spirits, a logos of what we can know about those moments when the religious experience itself breaks through the veils of dogma to assert the psychological reality of a living redemptive godhead.”
-John Beebe, Author of Integrity in Depth

“This volume ranges from near-classic treatments by such well-known scholars as church historian Gilles Quispel, philosopher Hans Jonas, and Buddhologist Edward Conze, to new approaches by scholars of very diverse orientations, including historians of religion, Jungian analysts, and in one case a Gnostic bishop speaking from her own experience. What binds them all together is the attempt to see the connections between the ancient gnosis and the problems and possibilities of our own age.”
– Birger A. Pearson, Professor of Religious Studies Emeritus, University of California, Santa Barbara

“The terms ‘Gnostic’ and ‘Gnosticism’ have been used both as epithets and as ideals…. Both generalizations lack differentiation. All the more is this book welcome in the face of current confusions. It represents a helpful articulation of specific gnosticisms, a realistic and concrete explanation of a variety of particular allures, as postmodern as they are ancient.”
– David L. Miller, Watson-Ledden Professor of Religion, Syracuse University
