Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Gnosticism's Christian form grew to prominence in the 2nd century A.D. Ultimately denounced as heretical by the early church, Gnosticism proposed a revealed knowledge of God ("gnosis" meaning "knowledge" in Greek), held as a secret tradition of the apostles. In The Gnostic Gospels, author Elaine Pagels suggests that Christianity could have developed quite differently if Gnostic texts had become part of the Christian canon. Without a doubt: Gnosticism celebrates God as both Mother and Father, shows a very human Jesus's relationship to Mary Magdalene, suggests the Resurrection is better understood symbolically, and speaks to self-knowledge as the route to union with God. Pagels argues that Christian orthodoxy grew out of the political considerations of the day, serving to legitimize and consolidate early church leadership. Her contrast of that developing orthodoxy with Gnostic teachings presents an intriguing trajectory on a world faith as it "might have become." The Gnostic Gospels provides engaging reading for those seeking a broader perspective on the early development of Christianity. --F. Hall

Pressestimmen

"The first major and eminently readable book on gnosticism benefiting from the discovery in 1945 of a collection of Gnostic Christian texts at Nag Hammadi in Egypt." --The New York Times Book Review

7 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von FrKurt Messick am 2. Februar 2006
Format: Taschenbuch
In her prize-winning book 'The Gnostic Gospels', a book which has remained in the popular eye for the past two decades since its first publication in 1979, Elaine Pagels has put together a popular treatment of a hitherto (but since more popularly-accessible) academic-only subject. The discoveries of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library were very much a topic of conversation, but always topics about which things were spoken, rather than of which things were spoken. This book helped change that in common parlance, and also served as a basic primer for those new to the field who would then proceed to more in-depth study and analysis.
In her relatively substantial introduction, Pagels goes through a history of the coming into light of the texts of Nag Hammadi, contrasting it with the more popularly known Dead Sea Scrolls. However, the Nag Hammadi texts also had their fair share of intrigue and cloak-and-dagger kinds of dealings, until finally coming into the relatively safe hands of museums and academics.
Pagels proceeds from this background with a brief history of Christian thought in the first few centuries after Christ. She particularly highlights the contrasts between orthodoxy and catholic trends, and how each relates to a gnostic point of view. What are the issues of the resurrection? Why was this taken literally? What authority is conferred upon those who saw the risen Lord, and why was it not so evenly spread (Mary Magdalene, alas, seems to have gotten the short end of the stick authority-wise, despite being listed numerous times as the first witness of the resurrection, and indeed the apostle to the apostles, proclaiming his resurrection to the unbelieving men).

6 von 6 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Anna Reber-Frantz am 18. April 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
The book, The Gnostic Gospels, by Elaine Pagels presents an easy-reading historical document that reveals the fundamental and theoretical similarities and differences of gnostic and orthodox Christians of the early Christian movement. According to Pagels, the finding of the 52 Coptic texts at Nad Hammadi in 1945, has seemingly shifted our very thoughts about Christianity as a traditional religious movement. Interpretation of the gospels reveals that historically, various diverse forms of Christianity flourished during Christianity's early formative years. Probably the single most threatening movement of the time was a group known as the Gnostics who formed from a variety of sources and traditions and who were often referred to as a heretical movement by the Christian church forefathers. The strength of Pagels work shows that although Gnostic and orthodox Christians believed in God and the value of sharing a relationship with God, they differed greatly in their approach to knowing and understanding God. Gnostics believed that one could know God by gaining insight into oneself, and that by knowing oneself, one might understand human nature and destiny. In general, Gnostics maintained an equality amongst individuals and established no fixed orders of clergy. They allowed all individuals to seek to know God through their own experience and to achieve personal enlightenment through rigorous spiritual discipline and self-discovery. Unlike the Gnostics, the Christian church developed as a religious structure to encourage social interaction amongst individuals and required only that individuals accept the simplest essentials of faith and a variety of celebrated church rituals.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von "shedona" am 30. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Elaine Pagels has shred the veil of time-distance to offer this rare glimpse into the "human, all too human" history of the inception of Christianity. The pervasive and popular misperception tends to be that Christianity arose after the death of Christ when the mantle was taken up by his remaining disciples and Paul (following a visionary conversion en route to Damascus) who travelled land and sea to disseminate Christ's teachings and preach his divinity and resurrection. As the research of this book reveals, the truth is as far from this rosy-lensed, storybook version as east is from west ... if not further.
_The Gnostic Gospels_ lays bare the dirty little secrets of tawdry personality politics underlying the formation of institutionalized Christianity and the established doctrines thereof. Pagels paints a more realistic portrait of the age-old institutional struggle between gnosis (revealed spiritual insight/wisdom received fresh, personally and individually) and orthodoxy (the codification of human consensus upon previously received gnosis, the fossilized corpse of yesterday's conversations with the divine which come to be called "orthodox theology" and to which any fresh understanding is demanded to conform in order to be considered "truth").
If modern Christians are not asking themselves where the real miraculous power and vitality are, where the LIVING spiritual connection is (beyond strained emotionalism, bully-pulpits and the smug, lazy certainty that they alone possess "the truth"), well, they ought to be. Pagels' book can definitely shed some light on that subject.
