 Pistis Sophia -- An Introduction by G.R.S. Mead
The chief business or interest of the orthodox Fathers was to select and stress what appeared to them to be the most bizarre points and elements, all that was most absurd in their judgment, in the many Gnostic systems, and of course, and rightly, everything that could be thought to be ethically reprehensible.
Pistis Sophia would seem ~o be intended to represent the type of the faithful repentant individual soul.
In any case, however all these very various elements and features in the syncretism be judged and evaluated, the Pistis Sophia is unquestionably a document of the first importance, not only for the history of Christianized Gnosticism, but also for the history of the development of religion in the West.

Pistis is deceived by this ploy, and mistaking this false light below for the True Light above, she descends to join with the lesser light.
Essentially, Sophia is the underlying nature of all that appears, whether apparently “good” or “evil,” and she gives herself to one and all just the same.
In the story of pistis Sophia, she descends, seeking the true light, and then ascends into the pleroma of light to unite with her consort, and it is said, this is how the true light got into sentient beings.

 Pistis Sophia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The title Pistis Sophia is obscure, and is sometimes translated Faith wisdom or Wisdom in faith or Faith in wisdom.

The best-known of the five manuscripts of Pistis Sophia is bound with another Gnostic text titled on the binding "Piste Sophiea Cotice".

This episode reflects on a lower level of the cosmic scale somewhat of the motif of the 'tragic myth' of the world-soul, the invention of which is generally ascribed to Valentinus himself, though he may possibly have transformed or worked up already existing materials or notions.
It is this long Sophia episode and its skilfully inverted mystical exegesis and allegorical interpretation, following the methods developed by Alexandrine contemplatives, which has produced the impression on many that it was of fundamental importance for the system of the P.S. The ethical Interest.
