Rethinking "Gnosticism": An Argument for Dismantling a Dubious Category


The term gnosticism, which often connotes a single religious movement, gives the false impression of a monolithic phenomenon. Here Michael Williams challenges the validity of the category "gnosticism" and the ways it has been described. Williams uncovers the similarities and differences among some major traditions widely categorized as gnostic and provides an eloquent, systematic argument for a more accurate way to discuss these interpretive approaches.
