In this episode of Standup Historian, I used multiple sources to examine and define Archons as they have been portrayed in Gnosticism.
Gnostic beliefs attribute the creation of the World to the Archons. A group of demonic creatures who serve their evil god Demiurge. Archons are the source of all evil on Earth, and they control man’s heart and mind. However, while busy with the creation of the World and man, the divine spark slipped into man, and that’s the only hope for the salvation of humanity.
Only through gnosis there is any hope for humanity to break free from the vicious cycle of life on Earth and under the dominion of the Archons!
