I apologize that I didn’t manage to find the time until now to mention the conversation about ancient Gnostic intellectuals that has been taking place lately.
Read Larry Hurtado’s post that sparked the discussion, April DeConick’s response, Larry Hurtado’s reply, as well as contributions by Mike Bird and Jared Calaway.
I think it is fair to sum things up by saying that neither all Gnostics nor all proto-orthodox Christians were intellectuals, and that neither group was devoid of intellectuals.
