Book: Echoes From The Gnosis Vol Vii The Gnostic Crucifixion by George Robert Stowe MeadThe Gnostic crucifixion is also part of the Acts of the apostle John; along with The hymn of Jesus (Echoes 4), the Hymn of the robe of glory (Echoes 10) and The wedding song of Wisdom (Echoes 11) it belongs to the Christian-gnostic works. The apostle John receives a vision in which Christ explains to him the signficance of the true, cosmic and mystic crucifixion: his passion and death were not physical but are part of a spiritual mystery which can only be fully understood by means of Gnosis. The BPH acquired the volumes from Echoes from the Gnosis piecemeal; this volume has a library stamp of the Glasgow Lodge of the Theosophical Society, and the ownership inscription of William McLellan, a publisher of theosophical texts in the 1920s.
Echoes from the Gnosis(1906) is a series of monographs under the title Echoes from the Gnosis (recently republished in a centennial edition) summarizing his insights into the formation of the Gnostic world-view. By this time Mead had published eight works on various aspects of the early Christian world and on “The Theosophy of the Greeks.” Together with his outstanding translations of the Hermetic books, these works established his reputation as one of the foremost English scholars in his broadly chosen fields. Mead was the first modern scholar of Gnostic tradition. A century later, the corpus of his work remains unequaled in breadth and insight.
