Overview

Excerpt from Fragments of a Faith Forgotten: Some Short Sketches Among the Gnostics Mainly of the First Two Centuries a Contribution to the Study of Christian Origins Based on the Most Recently Recovered Materials

The second of the three main divisions of the present volume, then, consists, for the most part, of matter already published; it has, however, been throughout carefully revised. For the rest, I have endeavoured to give the reader a bird's-eye view of the whole field of early Gnosticism. I have, there fore, added to the above-mentioned articles the main material to be derived from the Uncanonical. Acts and the Coptic Gnostic works, and have prefaced the whole with a general introduction, dealing mainly with the background of the Gnosis. To all of this I have appended a short conclusion and some biblio graphical indications to help the student. The treat ment of the subject is, therefore, new, in that no one has previously attempted to bring the whole of these materials together.
