Gnostic Mysteries of Sex: Sophia the Wild One and Erotic Christianity

by Tobias Churton Author

Gnostic Mysteries of Sex is, as you'd expect, an exploration of Gnostic sexual practices and secrets. Author Tobias Churton has scoured every surviving text written by heresiologists (those who study heresies) to reveal the most secret teachings taught by Gnostics. Their goal was to achieve a higher union with God by having as much sex as they could. Gnostic Mysteries of Sex documents their actual sexual practices, their connection to Aeon Sophia, the so-called Wild Lady of Wisdom, and the significance of "the seed" in Gnostic practice. Throw in a dash of Simon the Magus, add a bit of William Blake, mix in some medieval Troubadours, and you've got a heady mixture indeed.
