One of the blogs I like to follow is Larry Hurtado’s.  He is retired professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Univ of Edinburgh.  Twice weekly he writes a stimulating blog on all things pertaining to early Christianity.  A recent  post by him questioned whether the Gnostics were the elite intellectuals they have often been portrayed to be.  I include a link here for those who may be interested.
