The Gnostic Gospels is a speculative historical text that provides a scholarly opinion on possible alternate progressions of early Christianity. This speculation hinges on analysis of the title texts, the Gnostic Gospels, early heretical gospels which portray Christian mythology in a radically different light. Gnosticism is concerned with attaining mystic knowledge of God and deals more heavily and directly with symbolism, Christ as a human figure, and figurative resurrection and damnation than mainstream Christianity at the time.
