• Welcome to GnosticNYC

    We are a non-profit organization that works to promote the study and practice of Gnosticism in New York City and around the world.
  • Looking for something to strengthen your relationship to Gnosis? Watch our panel discussion for several suggested practices.
  • The mythos of Lovecraft is often an inspiration to Gnostics. This video series explores the weird universe of H. P. Lovecraft from a Gnostic point of view. (Artwork: Cthulhu Arises by SaintAlbans on DeviantArt)
  • What is Gnosis? Where did Gnosticism originate? This video series attempts to shed some light on this complicated topic.

“The Origins, Beliefs, and Symbols of Christian Gnosticism”

The study of Gnosticism can be illuminated by considering the philosophical environment of the world at the advent of the Christian era. This lecture examines the mixing of western and eastern cultures that led to the birth of Gnosticism in the first centuries of Christianity. In this context, the symbolic imagery and language of Gnostic thought are examined to reveal the main tenets of Gnostic theology, cosmology, anthropology, eschatology, and morality.

This lecture is presented by Bishop John Mongiovi, Primate of North America for the Gnostic Catholic Apostolic Church.
