R.I.P. Marvin Meyer
I have just heard of the passing of Marvin Meyer from a melanoma. He was an influential scholar on those religious movements that so often fall through the cracks of history (most notably "Gnosticism" and "magic"), popularizing and publicizing them to make them more widely known in several scholarly and trade publications. Several people more intimate with Marvin Meyer have noted his passing. Please see their comments here, here, and, here.
