Dr. David Litwa materialized at the Virtual Alandria to discuss Alexandrian mysticism from his new book, Carpocrates, Marcellina, and Epiphanes: Three Early Christian Teachers of Alexandria and Rome. Were the Carpocratians practitioners of libertine sex rites, dark magic, and Buddhist-like theology – or did we buy too much into heresy hunter polemics? Why is it essential for Gnostic studies to understand Marcellina, an overlooked early Christianity leader? And Epiphanes, a deep thinker who provided early models for communism/anarchism?
We found out and so much more.
