Abstract

In the diverse and heterogeneous traditions, groups, movements and pseudo- or anonymous writings—that could be labelled as ancient Gnostic literature from the second and third Christian centuries—prayer was obviously a characteristic feature and their prayer practices likewise had a fundamental place and role in their devotional life. The paper explores the relevant selected texts that exemplify prayer, its spherical and earthly practices, that also imply the concepts of creation or the created, physical world, with the purpose of investigating their negative view and hostility exhibited towards the creator and the created order.
