It appears that it is now possible to add polls to WordPress blogs (assuming one is able to deal with the tech bits), so I thought I’d do a slightly more serious one than I’ve seen on other blogs in the last day or so. When I tell people I’m doing a PhD on the Gospel of Thomas, many nod sagely and say “Oh, yes, the Gnostic gospel.” I actually don’t think it’s Gnostic but I’m wondering what other readers of this blog think. You will be pleased to see that there is an option where you can write in your own answer in case you don’t like any of mine. There is probably a character limit for the write-in box. If you find out what it is, please let me know. 🙂
It appears that the comments in “other” don’t show up when you check the votes, so I will paste them here. So far, there are three:
- Wisdom literature with gnostic overtones
- It’s eclectic – wisdom traditions, mystic traditions, gnostic traditions, synoptic
- Gnostic, but only because that’s what I read somewhere.
And a fourth:
- Wisdom open to gnostic interpretation
The results say there are now five comments, but I can only find four. I may have accidentally deleted it when I pressed ctrl-W instead of shift-W If your comment hasn’t been included, you might like to post a comment or email me at jredman2 at une dot edu dot au and I’ll put it up anonymously.
