The Gnostic Jung and the Seven Sermons to the Dead

239 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2002

“Gnosticism like mysticism pursues the inner way; its authority is not external but internal–a living personal experience–but without denying the outer world. Under the guise of Basilides, a second-century AD Gnostic sage, Jung wrote in 1916 the Seven Sermons to the Dead after he had received intense psychic experiences..The author [Stephan Hoeller]…has made his own translation of the sermons and sets forth a lengthy explanation and far-ranging commentary on Jung, Gnosticism, and the present condition of the Western individual.”—Choice Review

Gnosticism – New Light on the Ancient Tradition of Inner Knowing

257 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2002

We don’t have to look to the East for spiritual inspiration; there’s an ancient and authentic mystical tradition right here at home.

Gnosticism developed alongside Judeo-Christianity over two thousand years ago, but with an important difference: It emphasizes, not faith, but direct perception of God–Gnosticism being derived from the Greek word gnosis, meaning “knowledge.” Given the controversial premise that one can know God directly, the history of Gnosticism is an unfolding drama of passion, political intrigue, martyrdom, and mystery. Dr. Hoeller traces this fascinating story throughout time and shows how Gnosticism has inspired such great thinkers as Voltaire, Blake, Yeats, Hesse, Melville, and Jung.

Dr. Stephan Hoeller is a world authority on the subject who knows its practice from the inside. His comprehensive introduction refutes the common notion that Gnosticism as a coherent set of beliefs does not exist. To the contrary, Hoeller reveals that Gnosticism is the indigenous mystical tradition of the West. Beyond history, he also makes us aware that Gnosticism is still much alive today worldwide with an important message for the twenty-first century. Stephan Hoeller was born in Hungary, and graduated from the University of Innsbruck, Austria, before moving to the United States. He is associate professor of comparative religions at the College of Oriental Studies in Los Angeles and the Director of Studies of the Gnostic Society of Los Angeles, where he lives.
