Abstract:   (928 Views)

"Almodrakate" or the same "embossed part between the two shoulder" is one of the well- know gnostic terms. This is one of the important and essential areas of perception and cognition. The other terms used forit are "joint", "divine point", and "proved area of perception".

Moreover, "Almodrakat", via some Islamic tradition, has been attributed to the gnostic character of the holy prophet (p.u.h), so that it has been referred to as "prophetic seal" and "prophetic spot". The secondary themes the paper deals with are proving and explaining the relationship between Gnostic literature and the sciences of narration and tradition. Two main thems in this study are:

  1. a preface about the literal and idiomatic meaning of  "Almodrakate" and the study as a whole.
  2. An analytical process of the theme in the light Islamic and gnostic literature.
Keywords: "Almodrakate, Gnostic literature, embossed part between shoulders, Perception, witnessing.
