    “dissatisfaction with society, a compulsion to flee, reports of a constant struggle and a feeling of fighting against the establishment”…The establishment, in the religious context, would be the established church. Thus monks, thus rebellion against clergy, bishops, etc. Thus rebellion against established clergy needed to seek God. Thus seeking God from within yourself. Thus your are implying that hermits and gnostics go hand-in-hand. Which, BTW, I would agree with. So gnostics aren’t all bad. Just declared bad by the established clergy. Challenges their paychecks. Me bad.
