Definition of gnosis in English:
Knowledge of spiritual mysteries.
- This is a gross oversimplification, I think, but it lays the groundwork for potential gnosis through these horror-inspired ascending spirals of identity and awareness.
- Gnosis changes you - that's what makes it gnosis.
- The wisdom embodied in a Christian practice is not gnosis, available only to enlightened ones who decode hidden mysteries.
Late 16th century: from Greek gnōsis 'knowledge' (related to gignōskein 'know').
