Early Gnosticism refers to a point in Gnosticism that occurred following the Fathers of Christian Gnosticism and related groups but prior to the shift to Medieval Gnosticism.


Groups involved in Gnosticism during this timeframe are the Ophites, the Cainites, the Carpocratians, and the Borborites.[citation needed]


This classification ends with the beginning of Medieval Gnosticism, which was defined by activities surrounding the Bosnian Church and other groups.
