Continuing an examination of the diverse beliefs present among the Christian Church in the second century, this episode takes a look at the Gnostics – in particular the Valentinians.

Valentinius, a teacher of great influence who nearly became the Bishop of Rome, founded a system of belief that spanned the Roman Empire founded on the principle that the world in which we live is a false reality and only the teachings of Jesus can help us to see the truth.
