More than 4 weeks availability
Directly addressing the nettling questions of origins and definition, Pearson situates the advent of Gnosticism within the Greco-Roman religious world and critically appraises the sources. With illustrations, maps, timeline, and bibliography, Pearson's volume facilitates the pursuit of gnosis, at least historically, by general readers, students and scholars alike.
Birger A Pearson is Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies at the University of California, USA and a leading expert on Gnosticism.
