The Inspiration Came from the Alexandrian School

Inspired by Alexandria, this religion differs from Neo-Platonism in rejecting all the mythologies, the Orphic, Homeric, Olympian traditions, to be linked with Christ, through St John.

John’s gospel is ‘the Book taken by the angel to the zenith of the sky’.

It differs from Francis of Assisi, as well as from Joachim of Fiori, by its Alexandrian dogma and its invincible horror of Rome, of the ugly procedures of the Inquisition, of the killing of the heretics proclaimed by Leo I in 447, of the shameful condemnation of free thinking by the great Catholic theologians whose model, without doubt, is provided to us in St Thomas of Aquinas.

What they worshipped was the ‘Mani’, or the Holy Spirit.

Maneism is not synonymous of Manichaeism.
How many tragic mistakes this planned confusion has caused! It is the whole Cathar tragedy!
