The 'gnostic' influence on Christianity (An introduction)

Below is a short extract from my book, "Ba'al Zebul: The Lord of the Manor: Magic and Sorcery in the Early Church" this is due to be published at the end of 2020.

The terms 'Gnostic' and 'Gnosticism' come from the Greek word Gnosis which means 'knowledge.' The terms are used today, in academic as well as popular literature, to mean a group of people who believed that, rather than coming from 'faith Read more of this blog post »

I had a lot of fun putting this book together. I especially enjoyed writing about the link between the Roman concept of the genii, which is mentioned in an early extract in the New Testament, and the traditional Arabic concept of the Djinn.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.

Albert Einstein
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
Albert Einstein

Kenneth Patchen
“The Reason for Skylarks

It was nearly morning when the giant
Reached the tree of children.
Their faces shone like white apples
On the cold dark branches
And their dresses and little coats
Made sodden gestures in the wind.

He did not laugh or weep or stamp
His heavy feet. He set to work at once
Lifting them tenderly down
Into a straw basket which was fixed
By a golden strap to his shoulder.
Only one did he drop - a soft pretty child
Whose hair was the color of watered milk.
She fell into the long grass
And he could not find her
Though he searched until his fingers
Bled and the full light came.

He shook his fist at the sky and called
God a bitter name.
But no answer was made and the giant
Got down on his knees before the tree
And putting his hands about the trunk
Shook
Until all the children had fallen
Into the grass. Then he pranced and stamped
Them to jelly. And still he felt no peace.
He took his half-full basket and set it afire,
Holding it by the handle until
Everything had been burned. He saw now
Two men on steaming horses approaching
From the direction of the world
And taking a little silver flute
Out of his pocket he played tune
After tune until they came up to him.”
Kenneth Patchen

“Magic is not, as the followers of Epicurus and Aristotle think, utterly incoherent, but, as the experts in these things prove, is a consistent system, which has principles known to very few.”
Origen, Contra Celsus 1.24. (transl. Henry Chadwick, 1953)

Meister Eckhart
“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God's eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.”
Meister Eckhart, Sermons of Meister Eckhart
