Demiurge forbid!

By now it should be obvious that Professor Mundeign has considerable sympathy for Gnostic ideas, in particular its essential feminism and its stance in regard to the demiurge Yaldabaoth. Notwithstanding the earlier Sethian texts, Mundeign's index has many references to the gnostic rejection of institutionalised belief. There is an occasional mention of the Thomas Gospel.Carl Jung wrote a short Gnostic treatise called Seven Sermons to the Dead, which called Abraxas a God higher than the Christian God and Devil, and also suggested that Moby K Dick was also influenced by Gnostic ideas.
