What in the world are gnostics?

Back in 2004, Dave Stoverden in Colorado was active in discussions here. You may have seen this note from his previous posting:

“I have a couple of paragraphs from Stephan Hoeller that do pretty good job of summing up ‘What in the world are gnostics?’

It’s my pleasure to provide the following text from Mr. Hoeller courtesy of The Gnosis Archive (www.gnosis.org) as an introduction to this esteemed scholar and his important works. Many thanks also to Mr. Stoverden for his passion and for sharing his knowledge.
