Once, while studying translations of the Nag Hammadi Library texts, I ran across records about a Christian movement that emerged around the 10th century in the Balkans, the followers of which were called Bogomils. It is considered that the name of this movement originated from Bogomil, a man of religion who lived in the 10th century in the territory of contemporary Bulgaria. No specific records of his life have been preserved (here and below, only the most interesting facts are highlighted). What I regard as the most interesting are the ideas of this religious movement which are very similar to those of Cathars.

The 4th of August was the day of remembrance of St. Mary Magdalene, Equal of the Apostles. Countless riddles and fantasies are associated with this Personality.

To tell the truth, it has become news for me that even within Christianity there is no single opinion on who Mary Magdalene actually was. As a person reared on Christian traditions since my early childhood, I used to commonly think that Mary Magdalene was a “penitent sinner”, and I also heard something about stones, demons, feet ablution, the raising of Lazarus, etc. Thus, I had a typical set of knowledge of a person who doesn't know what she’s talking about.

Now that I approach information consumed by my consciousness more maturely, it has turned out that most of the knowledge I use is scrappy. I used to take many things on trust, not even thinking whether information I heard or read was trustworthy.
