Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Using the few sources available to him with penetrating insight, Jonas reconstructed the Gnostic worldview ... The Gnostic Religion remains, even today, the classic introduction" – Elaine Pagels, author of The Origin of Satan

"A fascinating exposition with copious quotations, of what is known of Gnosticism ... Dr. Jonas writes with authority, passion, and precision about this long-forgotten religion" – The New Yorker
