El Gnosticismo en el Cine

The Gnosticism in the Cinema essay is now available in Spanish. El Gnosticismo en el Cine PDF (432 k). This is an expansion of the essay that was on the old web site. The English version is supposed to appear this fall in Christianity & Society. The screen shots illustrating the points are only in this online version.

This is an attempt to define and illustrate modern gnosticism, distinguishing it from the ancient type, using movies to bring out the characteristics of gnosticism. It is only secondarily a film essay. I do point to certain incoherencies in gnosticism, which become a problem for movies that seek to express the gnostic vision.
