The Wrath of Gods: Esoteric and Occult in the Modern World (New)
by Tamas, Mircea A.
Publisher: Rose-Cross Books
Book ID: 9780973119145, 0973119144
Please inquire for availability
The Wrath of Gods perspective is a purely traditional one, or, in the historian of religions' language, a "mythical" one. In other words, everything the author states here is from this "mythical" point of view and the book wants to interfere as little as possible with aspects belonging to the modern sciences or with elements connected to the present political and social situation. What the author is interested in, and that is the reason for this work, is to find out how it is possible today to reconcile traditional, esoteric and occult perspective, and spiritual realization, with modern life. The author has no taste for polemics, fights about concepts or sterile criticism. The author is not interested in specific individuals or historical facts, and is not looking for scapegoats. If the book will consider the modern world, highlighting its flaws, these flaws will appear from a traditional and sacred point of view; from a modern perspective, they could appear, on the contrary, as positive developments. For example, Hesiod uttered that Zeus destroyed humankind "because they would not give honour to the blessed gods." From a traditional vision, the present lack of sincere religiosity is enough reason to stir the Wrath of the Gods; from the point of view of an atheist or of a "Sunday believer," the liberation from "the fear of God" means progress and emancipation.
The Wrath of Gods tries to answer to this difficult question: What "the Wrath of the Gods" really means for us, the modern people.

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...More
