Lecture no. 13 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas

“Becoming Male” through Valentinian Ritual

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

This lecture explores the extraordinary power and import of the Valentinian sacraments. Grasp the symbolism of the Eucharist and the complex ritual of baptism, as they represent resurrection and salvation. Study the Valentinian conception of salvation as a healing of the schism between our angelic and human (or female/male) selves.
