Who Were the Gnostics?

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas

Who Were the Gnostics?

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The 2nd-century writings of Irenaeus constitute one of the early sources on Gnosticism. Here, investigate whether Irenaeus’s claim that the Gnostics deviated from an original Christian truth is accurate. Then learn what Irenaeus tells us about the Gnostics’ beliefs, and how he helps us to identify key Gnostic texts.
