Abrasax is commonly referred to by the misnomer Abraxas, so commonly indeed that even Gnostic scholars have adopted the name Abraxas.
Speak with Abrasax, the eternal life force and guardian of the highest heaven – the god behind the sun. Abrasax represents the unification of all. In the Gnostic hierarchy, he is therefore the ruler of all the lower realms of reality, underneath the higher Aeons. He is superseded by the lowest of the higher realms, Sophia. Sophia is the Greek word for Wisdom, and is synonymous with Prometheus (forethought) and Lucifer.
