Sobre o livro
"Pistis Sophia" is a Gnostic text discovered in 1773 and thought to have been written between the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. It relates to one Gnostic group's teachings of the transfigured Jesus to the assembled disciples that blends primitive Christianity and Hellenic Paganism with other elements such as reincarnation, Astrology, Mystery religion and Hermetic magic. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in ancient mythology and religious teaching, and it is not to be missed by collectors of related literature. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
