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.
