A Gnostic Revival

In this episode I review two books about the marginalisation and return of gnosis. The first is a masterpiece by classical scholar Peter Kingsley – Catafalque – subtitled ‘Carl Jung and the End of Humanity’ about the inner decay of Western culture that has lost touch with its primordial roots. The second – The Gnosric New Age – by Rice University scholar Prof April DeConick describes how a countercultural spirituality and way of knowing has acted as a transgressive but creative impulse for spiritual renewal.
