ECHOES FROM THE GN
Ō
SIS
U
NDER
this general title is now being published a seriesof small volumes, drawn from or based upon, the mystic,theosophic and gnostic writings of the ancients, so as tomake more easily available for the ever-widening circle of those who love such things, some echoes of the mysticexperiences and initiatory lore of their spiritual ancestry.There are many who love the life of the spirit, and wholong for the light of gnostic illumination, but who are notsufficiently equipped to study the writings of the ancientsat first hand, or to follow unaided the labours of scholars.These little volumes are therefore intended to serve asintroduction to the study of the more difficult literature of the subject; and it is hoped that at the same time theymay become for some, who have, as yet, not even heard of the Gnosis, stepping-stones to higher things.

The Vision of Aridæus
, a vision of the afterlife from a work of Plutarch.IV:

, a brief survey of what was then known on thesubject of Mithraism. VI:
 A Mithriac
(
sic
)

The Gnostic Crucifixion
, also from the “Acts of John.” VIII & IX:

.X:
The Hymn of the Robe of Glory
(a.k.a. “The Hymn of the Pearl”), a poemwhich had gotten attached to some texts of the “Acts of Thomas.”XI:

2006
