Jacob Frank was a Jewish messianic claimant in 18th Century Poland. Famous and influential in his time, he’s mostly remembered today as a cult leader, a madman, and a swindler, and -maybe- he was all these things BUT that doesn’t mean his thought, his religious ideas, and his life are not fascinating and worthy of […]
The Secret Revelation of John was lost to humanity for almost a millennia and a half, and now that we have it again, what light can it shine on the human condition and our relationship with the Divine? What healing can it bring to a world that feels more broken than ever? Dr. Shirley Paulson’s […]
German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel is considered by many to be one of the most important thinkers to have ever lived.

Filmmaker, podcaster, and academic Helen Rollins comes on the show even though she’s probably sick of Gnosticism (she’s Jon’s thesis advisor). It’s a conversation that goes everywhere including the relevance of theology even if you’re not religious, art, trying to create during these Gnostic times, dialectical dialogues, filmmaking, and how embracing contradiction can set us […]
It’s our Christmas special and also another ep of our new show Pop Gnosis and wow…it’s also the reveal of our new host Rebecca “Bee” Scolnick!

The Most Holy Trinosophia is a mysterious text from the late 18th century composed of mystical images and text, maybe written by the infamous Cagliostro in the prison of the inquisition, that tells the story of an allegorical and initiatory journey.

Divination, magic, and various forms of oogie-boogie are associated with Tarot, so it is really something a dedicated Christian could benefit from?
