Usually available in 3-5 days
In this thought-provoking issue of Sophia, internationally renowned author and authority in Islamic Studies Seyyed Hossein Nasr discusses the many aspects of the spiritual dimension of Islam. Drawing upon his profound understanding of the French Islamic scholar Henry Corbin, Tom Cheetham, in his "The Test of the Veil," eloquently traces a path through the perilous alternations of darkness and light we face in this life. Acclaimed authority on numerology and harmonics Ernest McClain, in "Children of Abraham," posits that, from an ancient musical perspective, the tension among Jews, Christians and Muslims can be traced in part to the effort of Bible authors to illuminate three very different aspects of the Deity. In "Sketching the Perennial Religion," Patrick Laude writes with deep understanding of the metaphysical and spiritual reality at the core of traditional religions to which this term refers. Other articles include John Herlihy's "Elixir of the Heart," Charles Christopher's "The Purposes of Time," Michelle Kimball's "Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba's Nonviolent Jihad of the Pen," and "Esoterism and Exoterism in the Sermon on the Mount" by Mateus Soares de Azevedo.

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
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...
The Voynich Manuscript
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...More
