This inspiring issue of Sophia is dedicated to Christian-Muslim understanding. Taking as its point of departure a summary of the achievements of the first two years of the A Common Word initiative, written by HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad who is the motivating force behind the initiative, it includes two additional articles directly related to A Common Word-an address by Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, and an article by Joseph Lumbard titled "The Uncommonality of A Common Word." "Bosnian Christians and Bosnian Muslims" by Rusmir Mahmutcehajic takes an in depth look at continuity and discontinuity of religious traditions in that country, while the Archbishop of Antioch, George Khodr writes of the "Oneness of God's Community" from an Orthodox point of view. Vincent Cornell's contribution, "Practical Sufism: An Akbarian Foundation for a Liberal Theology of Difference," draws upon Sufi sources to outline the need for and ways to achieve inter-religious respect and tolerance. "Crossing the Great Divide: Christian Responses to the Encounter of Religion" by Harry Oldmeadow calls for a genuine ecumenism that seeks the inner and ultimate spiritual ground underlying differences. German traditionalist Roland Pietsch shares his profound understanding of traditional doctrine in his "Religious Pluralism and the Transcendent Unity of Religions."

He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

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
