For those who might be unfamiliar with the religious tradition of Gnosticism, it is generally a historical term used to refer to a number of mystical sects or groups that were primarily active around the Mediterranean in the first few centuries of the Common Era. This site serves as one of the better online repositories of information related to this religious tradition, both in terms of its historical coverage, and in its exploration of the faith as it is currently practiced. First time visitors may want to move down the homepage to the “What is Gnosticism?” area to read a few introductory essays. Their “Library” section is quite diverse as well, and offers everything from the complete writings of G.R.S. Mead, a noted scholar of the tradition, to transcriptions of Gnostic scriptures and fragments.
