Gnosis without Christ

Lecture no. 20 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas

Gnosis without Christ

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Two non-Jewish, non-Christian philosophical movements also responded to the ideas of the Gnostics. Study the tenets of Hermeticism, whose sacred texts offered an intellectual and philosophical path to gnosis. Learn also about Neo-Platonism, whose conception of gnosis emphasized our essential connection to God and the possibility of divine union now.
