Valentinian Views on Christian Theology

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

To fully comprehend Valentinian teachings, we must place them within the context of the diverse Christian beliefs of their time. Delve into the Valentinian views of the resurrection, the relevance of the Jewish Bible, and the authority of Valentinus’s knowledge, noting essential differences with the Christian thinking that later became orthodoxy.
