Gnosticism has made its mark on popular culture and shows no signs of leaving soon. Films like The Matrix, The Da Vinci Code and The Golden Compass have a basis in Gnostic history and beliefs. More than ever people have been delving into the fascinating and rich history and texts of this pre-Christian western religion. But anyone who does is sure to stumble upon a wide range of obscure terminology. The world of Gnostic mythology is populated by archons and aeons and a demiurge called Yaldabaoth. There are hylics and pneumatics and a pleroma. A Dictionary of Gnosticism is a scholarly, yet accessible, comprehensive guide to all aspects of Gnosticism and related spirituality, including the Nag Hammadi library and the ancient Gnostics; their successor movements such as the Manichaeans, Mandaeans and Cathars; Hermetism; the apocrypha; medieval heresy; dualism; and the modern Gnostic revival. It is the only one of its kind, well-suited to the serious student as well as the curious reader.
