Gnostic Christianity

Christianity could have been different, or more complex
than it is today, if the Gnostic movement had not been crushed
by the triumphant "Great Church" supported by the
overwhelming power of the Roman Empire.
An idea of the most influent among the various Gnostic schools,
the mystically and philosophically oriented Valentinian Gnosis,
moreover presenting many parallels and affinities
with the Vedanta and the Hindu Gnosis,
can be obtained by visiting
the Philosophia Perennis  website.
