Last week, out of around 32,500 people who got books from the site - 11 people gave donations. These books can take me from 2 to 10 hours to create. I want to keep them free, but need some support to be able to do so. If you can, please make a small donation (the average is £2.50).

This book draws from, among others, the likes of the Pistis Sophia to give an account of the early Gnostic believers. What follows is not by any means a full list of what is in the book. Part I covers the sources of Gnosticism and includes the origin of Gnosticism, the Book of Enoch, the Zendavesta, the Kabbalah and Buddhism. Part II covers the worship of Mithras and Serapis and includes monuments, ancient art, tomb treasures, talismans and the evil eye. Part III covers Abraxas and includes Agathodaemon Worship, the true Abraxas gems, the god Abraxas, legends and formulae. Part IV covers the figured monuments of Gnosticism and includes symbols, after death, punishments and magic squares. Part V covers the Templars, Rosicrucians and Freemasons and includes symbols, the mystery of Baphomet, Adam Weishaupt and Orphic mysteries.
