Sale edition abridged paperback and 3 audio CD set edition. Gnosticism was a wide-ranging religious movement of the first millennium C.E. whose adherents sought salvation through knowledge and mystical experience. Sample the gnostics in their own words with this unique book and audio set. The book, The Gnostics and the Scriptures, provides a brief yet thorough introduction to gnostic philosophy, while the CD audio programme allows you to encounter the gnostic scriptures as the living oral tradition they were intended to be. The selections are taken from among the most important - and most poetically beautiful - of all gnostic texts, including the Gospels of Thomas, Judas, and Mary Magdalene. The impact of gnosticism upon other religions of the world was considerable, and the influence of gnosticism continues to the present day.
