Description

True Christianity presents a sensible and satisfying alternative to mainstream Christianity. The last book published by Emanuel Swedenborg, it serves as both the keystone in the architecture of his theology and the summary of his far-reaching psychological insights. This volume, the first of two, provides unique answers to humankind's perennial questions about the nature of God and about Jesus---not only what his purpose was and how he fulfilled it, but why his life and death are still relevant to us now.

"This freshly translated work is of the most profound significance for anyone interested in understanding Swedenborg's thought. In my judgment, it is essential for both students and scholars, who will find it both a fascinating read and an invaluable addition to the field. The comprehensive and illuminating preface, introduction, and notes bring new insights to the text and its contents; they are truly distinctive contributions that make this edition of True Christianity a must for any good library."
---Dr. Antoine Faivre, professor emeritus of History of Esoteric and Mystical Currents in Modern and Contemporary Europe, Sorbonne

"True Christianity is the capstone of Swedenborg's thought and probably the best summation of his theology. It is invaluable for understanding the deeper meaning of Christianity. This new version, the best ever produced, presents this magisterial work with clarity and grace. The notes and introduction are not only helpful but fascinating."
---Richard Smoley, author of Inner Christianity: A Guide to the Esoteric Tradition and Forbidden Faith: The Gnostic Legacy

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
