The Gnostic texts found at Nag Hamadi have confirmed just how careful and accurate Irenaeus was in describing the beliefs of the multitude of Gnostic sects that flourished at the end of the second century. In this translation of the first of five books which make up Against the Heresies (the first complete translation of the landmark work in a over a hundred years), we find Irenaeus cataloging a roster of heresies, revealing as pure narcissism our tendency to think ''the problem of pluralism'' a new one.

An Eighth Day View:

This work, which establishes Irenaeus as the most important of the theologians of the second century, is a detailed and effective refutation of Gnosticism, and a major source of information on the various Gnostic sects and doctrines. This volume contains Book One.
