Most of the Gnostic churches in the world today stem from the French Gnostic revival of the 19th century led by Raymond Fabré-Palaprat, Jules Doinel and others. The EGCH itself may trace its succession to this movement as well as other ancient and modern sources. Gnosticism continued to grow in popularity throughout the 20th century largely due to the find of the Nag Hammadi texts and, later, the accessability of information through the Internet and popular media. Today, at the dawn of the 21st century, Gnosticism in its various forms has reached its all time pinnacle of expression and will undoubtedly continue to seek new plateaus. The EGCH is proud to be on the cutting edge of Gnostic philosophy in its attempts to synthesize the revelations of the great spiritual systems of the past and present.
