Scholars in Christendom have heard of Simon, the magician and how at Rome this sorcerer endeavored to fly by the aid of occult powers. Simon was an alias for Paul. Of all John's disciples, Simon was the favorite and after the death of his master, became the head of his school. Like other Gnostic teachers, his teachings begin with the Word, the Logos, which springs up from the Depths of the Unknown. Contents: Sources of Information; A Review of Authorities; The Theosophy of Simon.
