Default Andrew McGowan on the Supposed Marcionite Regard For Matter as Evil

McGowan is among the best scholars of early Christianity. Here he debunks the uncritical understanding of the Marcionite view of matter

"Of course Marcion did not love the old creation as such, but heralded the new, but just as his higher god acted to save Christians, certain things in the old world - or rather from it - could be loved, selectively, problematically, passionately."
