Gnosticism in the Cinema

March 29, 2008

The article on gnostic films is out: Christianity & Society, Vol. XVIII, No.1, April 2008. – p. 48

This article is more or less background to several posts here. It is, however, more about gnosticism than film. The movies are examples of the ideas discussed. I wanted to get past the empty way the label “gnostic” is thrown around, often really meaning “esoteric”, “neoplatonic”, or “I hate this guy, so I will call him a name.”
