About this Book: A study of the life, work and influence of the gnostic Valentinus (ca. 100-160), who nearly rose to become bishop of Rome, but was eventually ejected by the established Catholic Church on account of his heretical views. The book includes a translation, from the Coptic, of Valentinus’ Evangelium Veritatis, in addition to another gnostic text, the Letter to Flora, by Ptolemaeus, a disciple of Valentinus. Three highly illuminating and relevant illustrations are included, including a 16th-century woodcut portraying the gnostic system according to Ptolemaeus. Quispel’s explanation for this probably earliest known printed illustration of a gnostic system is added.
