Fragments of a Faith Forgotten. E-book. Formato EPUB

Un ebook di  George Robert Stow Mead  edito da E-BOOKARAMA, 2019

"Fragments of a Faith Forgotten", written by George Robert Stow Mead in 1900, is one of the best books about the Gnostics written prior to the Nag Hammadi discoveries. Mead, who also translated the "Pistis Sophia", summarises what was known about the Gnostics at the turn of the 20th century. At that time, a better picture of the Gnostics was emerging, based on several papyri which had been recently discovered. 

It was becoming increasingly obvious that early Christianity was a wide spectrum of sects, the record of which had been subsequently forgotten or suppressed by the Church. The Gnostics had deep connections with ancient Mystery religions, Pythagoreanism, Hinduism and other ancient beliefs. Most of the sacred texts of Gnosticism were long lost or survived only in small quotes.

Mead draws on information provided both by the Early Church Fathers hostile to Gnosticism, and the available corpus of actual Gnostic documents at the time, cryptic and fragmentary as it was. He includes excerpts from previously untranslated manuscripts, and extensive summaries of the "Pistis Sophia" and the writings of the critics of Gnosticism. This book is required reading for anyone who wants to understand Gnosticism and the development of early Christianity.
