Basilides the False

"During the first centuries of our era, the Gnostics contended against the Christians. They were vanquished, but we can imagine their possible victory. Had Alexandria triumphed instead of Rome, we would find the bizarre and muddled stories that I have recounted here coherent, majestic and ordinary."

A vindication of Basilides the False
Jorge Luis Borges.
