Epistola di Eugnosto (Eugnostos the Blessed)

 

Quali divinità componevano l’Olimpo gnostico?

S: viene spiegato l'Olimpo gnostico.

1 Questo è un testo che, come altri, si occupa di spiegare la composizione dell'Olimpo gnostico e dal quale stralciamo alcuni brani:

The Lord of the Universe is not rightly called 'Father' but 'Forefather'. For the Father is the beginning (or principle) of what is visible. For he (the Lord) is the beginningless Forefather. He sees himself within himself, like a mirror, having appeared in his likeness as Self-Father, that is, Self-Begetter, and as Confronter, since he confronted Unbegotten First Existent. He is indeed of equal age with the one who is before him, but he is not equal to him in power.
