    Pages: 7

    (7 pp) Knowledge has always fascinated Man, his curious nature prods him to seek it, often only to find out that he lacks the virtue to use it. In a very true sense knowledge is in fact power; this seems to be an unalterable constant whether in the ancient world or today. What we are about to investigate in this article is the "Gnostic" religion. Their appeal is a simple one. In a turbulent and unpredictable ancient world, at a time when Man felt that he was but a puppet in the hands of fortune, the Gnostics proclaimed aloud: "Come to us and we will enlighten you with Knowledge that will give you the power to be in charge of your destiny!" Bibliography lists 9 sources.
