The study of Gnosticism can be illuminated by considering the philosophical environment of the world at the advent of the Christian era. This lecture examines the mixing of western and eastern cultures that led to the birth of Gnosticism in the first centuries of Christianity. In this context, the symbolic imagery and language of Gnostic thought are examined to reveal the main tenets of Gnostic theology, cosmology, anthropology, eschatology, and morality.
This lecture is presented by Bishop John Mongiovi, Primate of North America for the Gnostic Catholic Apostolic Church.
(Earlier, at 12pm noon at the same location, Bishop Mongiovi will celebrate the Gnostic Holy Eucharist.)
