Founder of Character Education Scotland, Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network and former President of Wrekin Trust and the Swedenborg Society. Originally a merchant banker then a teacher of philosophy and modern languages at Winchester College, David is the author and editor of over a dozen books.
This talk focuses on the Gnostic Gospel of the Beloved Companion. Translated from Alexandrian Greek, it is said to have arrived in Languedoc with Mary Magdalene around 50AD and may well have been the spiritual treasure of the Cathars. It is a spiritually powerful and integral narrative that does not seem to have been edited and tampered with, as is the case with the canonical gospels.
