Gnostique. Gnostic. Gnosis. Gnosticism. Glorian Gnosis. Christian Gnosis. Gnose. Demiurge. In the Platonic, Neopythagorean, Middle Platonic, and Neoplatonic schools of philosophy, the demiurge (/ˈdɛmiˌɜrdʒ/) is an artisan-like figure responsible for the fashioning and maintenance of the physical universe.

Demiurge

The term was subsequently adopted by the Gnostics. Although a fashioner, the demiurge is not necessarily the same as the creator figure in the familiar monotheistic sense, because both the demiurge itself plus the material from which the demiurge fashions the universe are considered either uncreated and eternal, or the product of some other being, depending on the system. Platonism and Neoplatonism[edit] Middle Platonism[edit] In Numenius's Neo-Pythagorean and Middle Platonist cosmogony, the Demiurge is second God as the nous or thought of intelligibles and sensibles.[4] Neoplatonism[edit]

Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. Projet Université Gnostique. Gnostic Society Library. Almost all of the several dozen internet sites with collections of texts similar to our own obtained their material by directly or indirectly copying some files present at the Gnosis Archive.

Ours was perhaps the first major collection of such texts to appear on "the web" in 1994, and thus has served as a source for others creating "their own" collections. Unfortunately transcription errors, typos, and primitive HTML formatting were present in the massive amount of material added to the Gnosis Archive in our first years; in a repeated process of "copying" they have been very widely propagated around the internet.

Dans cette prison, il y a été projeté non par la décision arbitraire et inique d’un Dieu dictatorial suite à un soi-disant péché mais bien en tombant dans le piège d’une puissance mauvaise et parasite. Dans la narration gnostique, ce n’est pas le péché qui provoque l’exil mais bien l’exil qui provoque le péché. C’est-à-dire que coupé de son pouvoir d’amour et de perception juste, l’Homme est sujet à toutes les erreurs et peut être l’objet de toutes les influences néfastes. Fondamentalement et ontologiquement libre, l’homme doit s’extraire de sa prison non en fuyant le monde ou en le diabolisant mais en retrouvant en lui et dans le monde les éclats de lumière qui rendent toutes choses authentiques et merveilleuses.

Hiérogamie ou Mariage Sacré

Cet adage en vogue chez les alchimistes et les théosophes durant la Renaissance, illustre bien la fascination exercée par le mysticisme oriental sur les mentalités occidentales[1]. Cette fascination se trouve pour une large part à la racine du mouvement gnostique, aussi bien dans son expression antique qu’à notre époque. On la trouve déjà présente au VIe siècle avant Jesus-Christ, avec les théogonies élaborées sous l’influence des doctrines orphiques (du nom du personnage mythologique Orphée, dont elles prétendaient tirer leurs sources).

Ces théogonies, ou récits mythiques de la naissance des dieux, s’écartent sensiblement de celle d’Hésiode, lequel organisa et classifia le panthéon de la mythologie grecque au VIIIe siècle avant Jésus-Christ. 1.2 Le mythe de Dionysos 1.3 Alexandre le Grand et la divinisation du monarque 1.4 Les religions à mystère 1.5 Les racines judaïsantes du Gnosticisme.
