Bogomilism (Bulgarian: Богомилство, Serbo-Croatian: Bogumilstvo/Богумилство) was a Christian neo-Gnostic anf typical dualist sect founded in the First Bulgarian Empire by the priest Bogomil during the reign of Tsar Peter I in the 10th century.
Although there are few concrete remnants of the Bogomil era, between 950 and 1450, someone emphasized that the Bogomils still continue to live in the collective consciousness of the Bulgarians and that Bogomil thinking has nestled, among other things, in the highly developed thoughts of the Bulgarians on health and in their administration of justice.
it most probably arose in what is today the region of Macedonia as a response to the social stratification that occurred with the introduction of feudalism and as a form of political movement and opposition to the Bulgarian state and the church.
The survival of ancient gnosis no doubt made the area particularly attractive to Bogomil preachers from Bulgaria who penetrated the spiritual and cultural life of the Languedoc in the twelth century. The Grail was somehow coming home. These ideas were seized on with alacrity by Jan van Rijckenborgh.
Long before (in van Rijckenborgh's past live) Cathars extended the Bogomil ideas, and were able to crown their understandings with even further refinement. the Bogomils are called the Cathars of the East.
Religious secret knowledge, search for divine knowledge, what is this?
all that, associated with the word Gnosis.
However, what does it mean to experience gnosis inside oneself? Still we have possibility of change, to find out, have to turn to the source from which Gnosis rises.
Gnosis means “divine knowledge“. Gnosticism has survived until today.
Gnostics are people who search for this divine knowledge. It has been the meaning of some kind of source, bright sense to me for all my life.
