Synopsis: "The mysterious gospel is all that survives the great Gnostic bible called "The Books of the Savior." gnosticism was the mystical religion which challenged early Christianity, and The Pistis Sophia Claims to present revelations of jesus delivered after the resurrection. This secret doctrine of higher mysteries was said to have been taught by Jesus in the eleven years that followed the crucifixion. It was for the apostles who would spread the good tidings. Gnosticism disappeared when the official Roman Church became firmly established and supplanted such rival doctrines.... Here is a cosmic drama of the worldsoul and the dazzling mysteries of Divine Light which transcend matter....Long actively suppressed as heretical, this strange gospel is now reissued with detailed notes on its background by the scholar G.R.S. Mead."
