The Gnostic Throne of Alexandria

A post about a “Gnostic Throne” on which sat “the earthly representative of an ancient sun god” at stephan huller’s observations: The Gnostic Throne of Alexandria.



“In 828 CE a simple but quite beautiful object was removed from Alexandria and taken to Venice by a group of Italian pirates. The object in question was an alabaster chair, said to be the legendary Throne of St. Mark, the Christian apostle and gospel writer who, it was claimed, had once presided over the infant church in Egypt. This object represented the very beating heart of the early Christianity. ”

Apparently, it’s the size proper for a child to sit on, as the sun at dawn.
