Gnosticism Portal

Gnosticism is an early form of heretical Christianity banned by the Christian Church and the sect was eventually destroyed by Muslim invasions.

Gnosticism has Greek influences. It has the teachings of Christ without the influence of Hebrewism, citing Yahweh as being similar to the devil, called by the Gnostics 'demiurge'. Gnosticism is similar to Buddhism in that it opposes the indulgences of the material realm and encourages spirituality.

The knowledge of Gnosticism was eventually lost to modern man until archaeologists uncovered it.

Demiurge

The demiurge is described as being blind and ignorant of all that is spiritual.[1] One of his names given by the Gnostics is "Samael" which means "Poison of God" in Aramaic. Another name given to Satan is "Saklas" which means "fool" in Aramaic. In Lovecraftian mythology, Azathoth is the ruler of this universe and he is known as the "Blind Idiot God".[2]
