About the Author

Heidi Marx-Wolf is Associate Professor of Religion at the University of Manitoba.


"Spiritual Taxonomies and Ritual Authority is an original and thoughtful work, and one that will be of considerable interest to a range of scholars. Tracing the interactions among figures who have traditionally been perceived as operating within separate spheres-pagan Neoplatonists, Christian Platonists, Egyptian ritual experts, and gnostics-Heidi Marx-Wolf makes a persuasive and stimulating argument for how these thinkers used their expertise to establish their social authority."-James Rives, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
