Gnostics: A Crack in the Universe (1987)

Stephen Segaller

"The Gnostic Gospels said that the world was no place for the divine soul of man, that the world was tragic and that it wasn't created by God, but by a lower life divinity. To the question "Did a good God create a world of pain" they replied that there was a crack in the universe. The first 20th century scholar to read the Gnostics was C.G.Jung - their `Gnosis', or knowledge, was to him spiritual self-knowledge. In this programme, scholars debate the relevence of the Gnostic `pulse' for modern man."
