Local notes

Explores the contemporary psychological significance of Gnostic ideas and those of early Christian thinkers. Dr. Edinger first focuses on the ideas of Paul of Tarsus and Simon Magus, then explores those of their descendants: in the Church lineage, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Tertullian and Augustine; in the Gnostic line, Marcion, Basilides, Valentinus and Mani. A final chapter summarizes how these paradigms have evolved, and clarifies their psychological significance for the individual.
