The Early Church and Gnosticism

"As Christianity grew within and without the Roman Empire, Gnosticism spread as a fungus at its root, 
and claimed to be the only true form of Christianity, unfit, indeed, for the vulgar crowd, but set
apart for the gifted and the elect. So rank was its poisonous growth that there seemed
danger of its stifling Christianity altogether, and the earliest Fathers devoted
their energies to uprooting it."     ~The Catholic Encyclopedia (1917)
