Chapter Summary

This preliminary material presents the table of contents and a preface for the book Gnostica, Judaica, Catholica. Collected Essays of Gilles Quispel. Gnostic letters from Bilthoven are also provided here. Several of the mature studies in the book focus on Eleusis and other mystery cults, culminating in the far-reaching insight that the ancient concept of transformation through vision had its impact in Jewish and early Christian circles as well. Quispel states that the only hope for the Christian religion is ?to integrate Gnosis and personal religious experience'.

Keywords: Catholica; Christian religion; Eleusis; Gilles Quispel; Gnostica; Judaica; mystery cults
