Gnostic Christianity & the Myth of Sophia

Excerpt: the ancient truths have been released to the masses of humanity in the   form of allegory. The Myth of Sophia is such an allegory. It is the central   motif of the Gnostic books. Sophia is the Greek name for wisdom; to the   Gnostics she was revered because she was another symbol of the Gnosis.   Most of their cosmological texts contain variations of this story. The story   itself has parallels in many religious traditions.

First we will outline the myth, then present an explanation, seen  esoterically. There are many layers to any allegory; Blavatsky says there are   seven keys to unlock the secrets. These thoughts are offered merely as an   overview, a glance at a few of the most obvious aspects.
