Between 1906 and 1908, G. R. S. Mead published eleven small books under the series title "Echoes from the Gnosis." These books contain translations and interpretations of the Gnostic writings of the ancients. Long before the discovery of the Nag Hammadi Library, Mead translated these esoteric texts of various origins (Christian, Roman, Greek). He wanted to make this material accessible to the growing number of people at the time eager to encounter this ancient mystical religion based on an intuitive process of knowing oneself and the hidden aspects of life and existence. Upon the publication of the 100-year anniversary edition of the series, the appeal for this same material remains stronger than ever.
Each chapter focuses on a particular Gnostic text or texts and includes a mix of historical background, informed hypotheses about the origins of the texts, and literary interpretation. Having devoted his life to esoteric studies, Mead is uniquely qualified to offer insight and meaning into the complex symbolism found within these books. You may be surprised to learn, as Mead suggests, that some of these texts were not even intended to be read as books, but utilized in mystery rituals and songs.
G. R. S. Mead was a pioneer in Gnostic studies who always sought to unite his studies with the quest for spiritual knowledge. As a result, Echoes from the Gnosis reflects an unusual combination of scholarship of a high order with a conviction of the truth of Gnosticism that inquirers into this topic will deeply appreciate.
