	Okay, how many times have we read something to the effect that 
Gnosticism had its roots in Zoroastrianism, apocalypticism, Judaism,
or whatever? Then when we looked for a 1st CE text that was considered
Jewish *and* Gnostic we found only allusions to early Kabbalah?
	Jim, have you read _Rethinking Gnosticism: An Argument for
Dismantling a Dubious Category_ by Michael Williams (1996)?
