Description

1989: xviii+228,notes,index. Translated from the Persian by M.R. Ghanoonparvar. Critical essay by M.A. Jazayery.

Ahmad Kasravi (1890-1946) is one of the most prolific writers of 20th century Iran, with broad interests as a reformer and social thinker. He wrote on a variety of subjects, including history, geography, social criticism, literature and philology. In his works, Kasravi challenges convention and what he sees as decadent ideas, superstitions and various other ills of society. Nowhere are his controversial ideas more evident than in his writings on Islam in general, and Shi'ism in particular.

This volume is the first translation of two of Kasravi's works, Dar Piramoun-e Islam (On Islam) and Shi'igari (Shi'ism). In the context of Shi'ism, Kasravi dared to directly attack the Shi'ite clergy, which angered religious groups and eventually led to his assassination by a group called the Fada'iyan-e Islam in 1946.

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...

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...
