The early days of Christianity were quite complex. There were numerous beliefs, interpretations, and schisms. Most of them died out after Christianity and the Church (mainly Catholic) as an institution were set up. The people who founded these sects were known as Gnostics. They believed they held a secret knowledge about God and the divine, held different views of Jesus and his teachings, and many of their texts were destroyed as they were considered heretic by the early Church.

In this gallery, we delve into some of these sects, their beliefs, and why they were rejected by mainstream Christianity. Click on.
