The Johannite Church, properly known by its full name, l'Église Johannite des Chrétiens Primitifs (The Johannite Church of Primitive Christians), is a Gnostic Christian denomination founded by the French priest Bernard-Raymond Fabré-Palaprat in 1804.[1][2] The Johannite Church received its full name in 1828 after Fabré-Palaprat's claimed discovery of the Levitikon gospels.[3] It is "Johannite" because it claims a continuity with the primitive Johannine Christianity of the saints John the Baptist and John the Apostle, and the Christian scriptures attributed to John.
