Item description for More Lost Books of the Bible: Pistis Sophia (More Lost Books of the Bible) by G. R. S. Mead...
This book is one of the earliest, extensive extant texts of Gnosticism, and one of the most important. It was extremely influential to Carl Jung, and continues to astound and enlighten seekers thousands of years after its first appearing. It is set forth in terms of mysteries which are conceived in a more vital way than in earlier literature. On the lower side the mysteries still keep in touch with the tradition of words-of-power, authentic, and incorruptible names. But this book introduces the higher mysteries, in which the Savior himself is concretely the first and last mysteries.

More About G. R. S. Mead
G. R. S. Mead is regarded as a pioneer in the field of Gnostic and Hermetic studies. A highly intuitive scholar, Mead joined the company of Madame Blavatsky and her close associates. In this circle, he learned the profound mysteries of the Gnostics and became a translator of these writings. Mead evidently suffered some scholarly prejudice because of his connections with Theosophy. However, he also visited with C. G. Jung during his last years, and Jung thanked him for his dedicated work, his outstanding use of the English language, and for his affinity toward the experience of Gnosis.
