Gnosis was once the main religion of ancient empires that later became the secret religion of the royal El-ite.
It is from the word Gno that we get the modern word, "to know." This would later develop in a special name for the royal class who were in the Gno with the word "Gnoble" which became the modern "Noble."
A compound word composed of the words Gno (Gnosis) and able which means having the power, skill, means, or opportunity to do something.
This etymology is also where we get the Old Latin word when a person is lacking Gnosis, which is 'ignotis' meaning 'unknown."
From the word ignotis, we get the modern meaning in English, 'ignorant' which in Latin is, ignarus. Thus a personal lacking nobility or nobility is ignoble,
The current Gno-bility or Nobility are the ruling class through the laws of hereditary by birth, rank or title as the Emperors and Empresses of the Ancient Roman Empirical bloodline of Caesar. The de facto Kings and Masters of Jerusalem who hold the scepter carried by rulers on ceremonial occasions as a symbol indicating their rank and sovereignty.
