Gnostics were a secretive Christian sect. They worshipped Sophia, the Great Mother of all wisdom, sought heavenly knowledge and rejected all matters of the flesh. For four centuries they were heavily persecuted by Rome.

Perhaps they were among the people who made use of the Catacombs of Jerusalem to worship in secret. Their symbol of the eight rayed sun, representing the universe with the dome of heaven in the center, was found above a door.

The door below the symbol leads to the sarcophagus of the Thing. While the position might be arbitrary, it could as well mean that the Thing was a Gnostic.
