Presentation on DVD: Cracking the Gnostic Code

Speaker:                        Dr. John Algeo

Time:                             10:00 a.m.

Brief Description of the Talk on DVD:

Gnosis means spiritual knowledge while Gnosticism was an ancient, pre-Christian form of esoteric wisdom.  The speaker refers to Gnostic texts such as Pistis Sophia  and  Echoes from Gnosis  that were  translated by the 19th century theosophist, G.R.S Mead, who was at one time the private secretary of H.P. Blavatsky.  The speaker provides general hints towards the explanation of the chart of the Pleroma according to Valentinus, an early Christian gnostic theologian.  In addition, the speaker shows that Gnostics coded their wisdom into poetical and symbolic works that need to be “decoded.”

Short Bio of the Speaker:

Dr. John Algeo was the President of the Theosophical Society in America.  He is Professor Emeritus at the University of Georgian and was Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor of English until his retirement.  He is the author of the book, Reincarnation Explored and coauthor of the Power of Thought.  He has been the editor of the Quest magazine and has presented Theosophical courses and lectures around the world.
