La Nueva period no es un movimiento aparecido de los angeles nada en el siglo veinte. Su ideología y práctica se originan en los angeles Gnosis. Durante el siglo primero A.D. se asistió a un vigoroso crecimiento de esta filosofía que manifestaba los angeles pretensión de guardar en su seno el mensaje auténtico de Jesús. Frente a él se alzó un conjunto de personajes que veían a l. a. Gnosis como una perversión del mensaje cristiano y a su "Cristo" como "otro Cristo", radicalmente distinto del histórico. Para ellos, los angeles Gnosis period un enemigo peligroso que debía ser abatido.
Partiendo de los documentos históricos, Los orígenes de los angeles Nueva Era relata l. a. pugna colosal en l. a. que se enfrentaron dos cosmovisiones diametralmente opuestas, l. a. neotestamentaria y los angeles gnóstica. Las consecuencias de esta pugna resultan visibles, incluso en nuestros días, en el desarrollo e ideología de los angeles Nueva period.
