Gnostics - heretics o Gnostics believed in 2 gods o Believed in one true god, angels, created false heavens, 365 false gods…the god who claimed to be a god, was a false god, sent his son 3. Tips for coming up with Level 3 Questions: o Look for debates between scholars (often found in a source's introduction) Look for a intro with a "debate" o Seek out ambiguities (places where scholars don't know things for sure, usually not found in textbooks or encyclopedias) Not from Bentley and Ziegler Places and text where something is unclear, where you have a question, and where scholars have a question o Avoid "role of" questions ("What was the role of women in medieval Europe?") Roles (e.g. The Role of Women) are topics, not questions. o Avoid "what were" and "how did" questions ("What were the causes of decline of the Roman empire?") "What were…" and "How did… usually begin level two questions.
